Some emails asking how we are going down here since the earthquakes

I have had a couple of PM's asking how we are going down these parts since the last round of earthquakes. Just to say we are OK down here in Christchurch, however the earthquakes were centered some 200 miles north of us.

Road and rail links have been broken, but in the last hour or so, the main road link has reopened but one lane in some parts. Many houses and buildings have been damaged.

Thanks for your thoughts.

Scud,
Pleased to hear that damage is restricted to "things that can be repaired".
Having said that, I have a  mate in CHCH who told me that much of the old town (more British than Britain?) was a write-off , -  and that wasn't the houses so much as the block of land that had liquefied.  Sheesh.

I was involved with bearings for the TePapa museum and the Wellington Hospital , built almost directly on the fault - relative movements between ground and structure up to +/- 600mm sheesh ( 2000 year quake).  As you say, no wonder they call em the Shakey Isles.   

Good luck in Bledisloe (Rugby) tonight - may the best bruisers win.   (I'll add a couple of poems)

Yeah, the place is pretty well a flat land now and still land not worth building on.

Kick off is in a about 45 minutes and we have Richie back too.

You can put your mate in contact with me if you like.
