Shakeytown! Christchurch Hit by New Quakes

Christchurch Cathedral after the February ‘Quake

In the last hour and a half, my home town Christchurch New Zealand’ has been hit by four big earthquakes, including a Richter scale 5.5 and a 6.0.

There is considerable damage on the East side of Christchurch, and several reported injuries. No reported deaths so far, touch wood.

We live on the west side of town and suffered no damage.

I was driving during the 6.0 and it was like being on a mini roller coaster!

As I type this, we just got hit with what I estimate was a 4.0.

Thanks for all the emails from Australia, the US and other parts of NZ.

We’re all fine here.

Signing off from Shakeytown.

Woops and there’s another wee one!

And another quite big one!

I’d better finish this post. Its obviously provoking them!
