The uplift in some of those photos is incredible. And the size of those cracks...wow. Thank you for finding that.

5.0 in Argentina a few minutes ago.

Theres is some confusion about what happened_ perhaps there was two quakes close together_ as has been happening in other parts of the World lately ie Moro Gulf, New Britain PNG, Samoa etc
The Minister of Civil Defence keeps saying 7.4 and 7.1 aftershock, but none of the geological sites have anything to back this up _ stupid politician


It looks like the 7.4 has been downgraded to 7.1, but not sure if thats just Geonet towing the USGS line and converting to Mw or its still ML.

Certainly some major damage north of ChCh, Kaiapoi way.

If its anything like last years Dusky Sound quake the aftershocks will go on for months. GNS Geologist on TV said they are looking for a fault rupture near Darfield of 100km x 2-3 metres high


edit: I just in checked again;
its 7.4ML OR 7.1Mw, not 7.4 and 7.1

Happy to see you are Ok and on line, aorAki too. My prayers to all of you and especially hope to see Moorf soon. Hoping it's just a power outage and she is fine.
I will keep watching.
And nature wasn't bad enough with the earthquake, stay warm and safe despite the sever weather warnings.

Further to this;
Even the Prime Minister is talking about " an aftershock of 7.1" on TV

Either there actually was two x 7's, or these spokespeople need some better prior briefing from the geologists before going on TV.
Now, to add to the mystery, if you do a search on the NZ Database, there is a quake 5 seconds after the Mainshock at -43.52707,172.12192,, which doesn't have a magnitude.
Are they keeping their options open for a complex multiple event?

I think we are looking at separte events! - Keep in mind the new research that was just put out from last years events - 3 when originally thought as 1.

Geez - is Puterman on Holiday with Moorf's?? Now I'm worring about the both of them

Hi everyone.

We have just got power back. We are fine but as we are about 10km from the epicentre we had a huge ride. Massive movements.

I am still having problems processing it mentally and held it together until I got online to communicate.

I'll write more of the experience later once I've collected my thoughts (and had a stiff drink).

I really thought I was going to die. And now I can't relax - we are still getting very gentle swaying and had a few big aftershocks - the MSM doesn't help the matter by their "predictions" of another big one..

There was one just as I typed this... feel sick.

Heres a list of the aftershocks, after 11 hours. There will be more added in between when they get time to further analyse the data (based on past events of a similar size) and locations may change.
The Felt tags are just those reported to Geonet, the others were probably felt as well

Thank you, we all need your good vibes here at the moment.

Am sat here just waiting for next one.. 5.6 aftershock went through an hour ago and have had several rumbles underfoot since.

I shan't be sleeping tonight...

hi i thought id jion in for a bit here
i was looking into liquefaction of soil that has effected christchurch


There are four main hazards from earthquakes: shaking, faulting, tsunamis, and ground failure. Liquefaction is how shaking causes ground failure. If you've played on the beach, you can see how it works: find a patch of wet sand down in the surf zone. It may be firm enough to walk on, but if you pat it a few times the saturated sand turns to muck. In earthquakes, the same thing occurs in buried layers of young sediment, down at the water table as deep as 10 or 20 meters

Hope all our people in Christchurch and Canterbury regions can stay safe and warm. Hope MoorfNZ is safe too. Aftershocks still happening. I was thinking it's quite miraculous there are no casulties reported seeing that the area is quite well populated.

Prayers and thoughts to all those in the affected areas.
