Christchurch Earthquake

posted on 8th of september, 2010

Hi all,

I live in Christchurch, New Zealand, which as some of you may know suffered a 7.1 earthquake on Saturday morning. Siince then we've had over 300 aftershocks and I thought people might bve interested in this map which shows the quakes as a timeline and their depth and intensity. http://ow.ly/1qPKcG

Our Emergency responders have done an amaizing job and within hours most of the city had electricity, withing days we could use the sewewreage system and yesterday got the all clear for our drinking water.

I'd like to say a big thank you to all of them who have and are helping us through this difficult time. This is all the more remarkable considering that some will also have had damage to their homes aswell.

I've also uploaded a few images...

It is good to hear that your home is coming back together so quickly, and that the city responders are doing such a good job. My prayers go out to you all, hoping that the worst is over. Please keep us up to date.
