  • Mood:
That'll teach me to complain about not being affected. There was a 6.0 after the 5.5. I was in the living room with Leah and things started falling down. The whole house swayed and so I dove under the door with Leah to cling until it stopped. There is dripping in the roof, but I think that stopped too. So our hot water tank must have sloshed some more water out of it. The kittens are fine, though Ariadne won't come out from under my bed.

City council staff at the Art Gallery's civil defence headquarters said the 2.20pm aftershock was "very very significant" and a number of buildings had collapsed in the red zone.

Emergency teams confirmed the leaning Hotel Grand Chancellor had tipped further over.

The Art Centre's historic clock tower has lost its clockface. It has shattered and fallen to the ground.


And there's yet more photos. Like this one.

Enough of this.

EDIT: Key said to demonstrate the significance of today's quakes, the magnitude six quake this afternoon registered an eight on the Mercalli scale which measures the intensity of earth quakes. By comparison the February 22 earthquake was a nine.

Not surprised. That one today did feel as horrible as that one in February.

EDIT 2: "This size of events is likely to produce its own aftershock sequence, therefore rejuvenating aftershock activity at least in the short term."

OH GOOD. Again not surprised. But *sigh*
