Holy crapola !
I guess this is what happens when you go to live on a piece of land which has only recently been formed, and isn’t quite finished yet.
It’s a bit like building a city on the San Andreas Fault one of the least stable places on earth – not hugely sensible. The clue is in the world “fault” 🙂Posted 4 years agoaaMember
I heard about it this morning and had a moment of reflection. Hope casualties are a minimum. I love nz as a country and the people, and know kiwi’s are a resiliant bunch!Posted 4 years ago
I sat through a 4.8 ish quake in picton once which was pretty scary, 6.5 would be proper scary i imagine.
Ha ha Ernie nice one. Plenty of scope for cleanup.Posted 4 years ago
6.5 was get down on the floor over the baby in her car seat sort of scary. We were in a shop and the shelves emptied themselves. Got home 10 minutes later and the blinds were still moving. Next doors pool had a tsunami moment !!
Sounds grim but you must have an impressive standard of building if you were hit by an earthquake of magnitude 6.9 and only minor damage occurred.Posted 4 years ago
Just had 2 1/2 days of quite worrying earthquake activity culminating In a 6.5 pant wetter earlier this evening. Without a doubt the scariest thing I have experienced and every time this happens thoughts turn to running away ! Nothing you can do but I feel better for,letting you all know , quite a bit of damage too.Posted 4 years agoWorldClassAccidentMember
Slight;y different reaction from some friends who have just moved over there: We experienced our first earthquake this afternoon. We had just got home from food and DIY shopping, the kids had gone outside to play on their skateboards and skates and suddenly the house swayed from side to side and the lights and trees in the garden all swayed. It was really weird. Wellington had a 6.9 earthquake and it was felt as far up as Auckland and as far down as Christchurch! Luckily there hasn’t been a lot of damage just a bit of building and road but no one hurt as far as we have been told on the news.
The children didn’t feel anything!Posted 4 years ago
A reasonably settled night after a couple of drinks to settle the nerves. Only woken once at 3:15 with a gentle 4.9. Resolved my issue of how to watch end of tour,open and also get my meetings done- work closed until building assessed ! Off out for a ride, a spa and some emergency planning !!Posted 4 years ago
