For starters My home and family are fine, we have just a few minor cracks in the roof and walls but that will be easy to fix. On the other hand the inner city it totaly stuffed...it seems that 4/10 buildings in the central business district will have to be demolished ( the ones that didnt come down in the first quake ) It also seems that some areas got away with very little damage ( like our area ) when just 5 mins away some houses have sunk into the ground or split in half. Alost of Christchurch suburbs are built on old swamp or marshlands and they have what is called liquid faction...this is where sand and water erupt from the ground and bog down whole streets or create huge sinkholes. Power and phone have been restored to about 80% of the city and we do have water but there are fears that the sewer lines have mixed with the fresh water lines, so we have to boil the shit out of the water before we touch it and some people have got sick because they didn't. So yeah it is bad very bad but there have been no deaths thankfully and everyone is supporting eachother. They warn that another big one could be on the way, the first quake was at about 4:35 am saturday and that was 7.1 on the richter scale and since then we have had over 120 aftershocks that range from 3 to 5.3 and they fear that one as big as 6 may happen yet.

Just saw the news post (a little late) and was about to start a topic myself. I'm glad to hear you and your family (and house) are alright, buddy. That's some really scary stuff; it's weird that it seems there are a lot more instances of major earthquakes happening around the world than usual. Keep us posted dude.

We are up to about 600 aftershocks right now and In the last 24 hours the energy in them has picked up in a big way...we fear another quak as big as 6 is on the way. We had 3 in the last hour that ar atleast 4.5 and they seem to be getting stronger. I now have a massive crack in my celing and the small ones in my walls are getting longer and wider....the house is still sound but it is going to need alot of work to repair...thank god for insurance.

Thats typical kiwi humor lol, no point in crying about it...poke some fun at it instead.

And despite the quakes Metallica is still going to do their two shows in Christchurch and next month in Auckland.
