    Yes im fine & still alive. Around 65 people dead, over 100 est trapped. Pyne Guld Guness or something like that, building has collapsed. Canterbury TV station has collapsed.

    Some cell towers are destroyed, some radio stations are hard to pick up.

    Went into the city to find my gf, as the txts wernt getting through from overloaded network. They have been queueing txts and things so it can take up to 45 mins to get txts. Her house is damaged.

    Took over 2 hrs to get to the near centre of Christchurch ( not the CBD, but below it ), to check on some mates along the way.
    The bridge to sumner beach is out & residents have to drive a LONG way around the hills to get there instead now.


    Out in the rural area just outside chch we are fine & have phone & power.
    Most of the city is without power & water. Residents cannot flush the toilets. Only 5 of the city sewage pumps are working. The rest are destroyed.
    Coms & power are badly damaged. It is estimated several days before they will be 80% up & running.


    The last earthquake was deeper & further away so the shock that hit chch wasnt as violent. This one was smaller magnitude, but it was right next to the city & VERY shallow.



    Our great cathedral in Cathedral Square is badly damaged. It is one of the great icons of our country & especially our city.
    The tower spire which was destroyed 100 yrs ago & repaired by our ancestors has yet again been destroyed with the spire collapsing down through the tower.

    Theyre talking of setting up a cordon around all of the Ave's which includes CPIT. So I hope CPIT is ok. I need to be able to go there to study.





    My experience:


    Driving through Chch was a long process. Traffic lights are out & busy intersections are so scary. There are no cops or anything to guide traffic. Basically people just wait & some pull out infront of each other.

    Streets have massive holes in them, bridges are cracked. Roads are cracked & have bumps & heaps. Theres sand & water pushing up through many streets & many walls & fences broken. Many chimneys not destroyed by the 7.1 quake in sept last year, are definitely destroyed now.

    Traffic is at a crawl in the city, especially around the streets covered by sand & water.


    Its pretty devistating.

    This is going to be billions to fix it.

    Fuels running low. Even our pumps in Selwyn district ( the area between the mountains & the outskirts of chch ) are empty. Only Oxford has any petrol left.


    I dont know how we are going to come back from this. The country is already poor and the previous quake cost several billion.


    I think eventually joining with Aus will be out only option to survive.
    Not that we will have a choice anyway. The south island is slowly moving toward australia.

    Sooner or later they will do polls in both countries to see if the two wish to unite together. I know they contemplated an open borders pact but it never want ahead.

    Well its gunna be a lot better if Aus does unite with NZ coz if the quakes start waking up the volcanoes then we are gunna have to Evac! and theres a big plan for what happens if they get activity from Mount Taupo. Goodbye NI Hello SI and Aussie! but yeah, Auckland will be hit hard because of the 10 or so that are around them, mostly Dome, so you may be able to out drive it because its a slow flow of runny lava, however! there are some problems, although Mount Rotorua its Dead, i fear that the Quakes may open a new hole in the Crust for lava to get through, this is only if there is activity from Mount Taupo, then explode like it did last time. It would be Deavastating on a MASSIVE Scale. This also means that because there are Volcanoes all through NZ, Aussie would be the "Safest" place to go.

    If you want to know a little more on WTF Mount Taupo or Rotorua is please ask otherwise all the people who had Education in NZ, WTF? HOW COULD YOU NOT BE TOLD NZ HAS A SUPERVOLCANO ON IT?

    Cheers
