Wooo... I just had the pleasure of rocking and rolling through a 7.1 earthquake this morning. I can safety say that was ****ing awesome, if not slightly unnerving.. ^_^ Aside from a bunch of smashed plates, pots and other little nick nacks my place seems good, lost power and water for a while there, but all good now. :)

Good to hear you only had some minor damage. A few other people weren't so lucky from what I saw on the TV ONE news that was all day.

It's quite rare that New Zealand has an earthquake. Luckily there were no deaths since the population in NZ is small.

Why are you always wrong!? New Zealand is on a fault line, we get earthquakes every five seconds.

Some or many people have lost their homes and their stuff, And that's really not good, Is there's any death or affected people?..

I heard 90% of the households are damaged, most beyond repair. Is it really that bad?

Nah, its not that bad. But there is a lot of buildings and homes that will have to be demolished.

 

We've done a thorough look around no damage that we can see here, ignoring a few bits and pieces inside. This side of town seems alright I suppose, most of hte damage and problems seem to be on the eastern side of Christchurch and of course around the CBD that and Kaipoi.

 

But **** these aftershocks are starting to grind on my nerves, just had three or so about an hour ago which were bloody big. 5.4 or something, not very fun anymore...

5.4 is NOT AN AFTERSHOCK. That is what is known as an EARTHQUAKE. :P
