XPLodER - we actually insure our homes in Chch from liquefaction - most of the city is built on sand etc so liquefaction is very serious with big shakes. There were a couple of incidents reported this time, I believe. We are well aware of this phenomenom.

We have 10's of thousands of quakes here in NZ each year. That map you refer to is just felt ones that people report feeling.

We live with them - but not big ones. This was big and I am so impressed at fellow Kiwis at there amazing community spirit and get-on-with-it attitude

Apologies if my responses sounded terse or stern - it's just the frame of mind I'm in at the moment - very black and white. I hope you all understand.

I hear you...these aftershocks are doing my nerves no good...at least my dogs are sensible and hide each time!

Just glad you're safe and have power back again!

After the 6.5 we had here in Northern California,I felt "off balance" for days,and very "on edge" expecting another one!

This experience can only add to your knowledge and fascination with earthquakes,I imagine.

My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Apparently the quake wasn't caused by the Alpine Fault but by lesser-known faults on the Plains. Here in Waddington (10km west of Darfield) we have a fault line that the Uni was investigating 3 yrs ago using depth chargers - it runs along the fence line of our land!

So, I'm interested to hear thoughts on which faults affected us - I know that we had very definite East-West shaking, not North-South, during the main event.

So glad you are safe! The largest quake I have been in was a 6.7 right here in Washington. It's really something. Yours was obviously much more intense.

It seems like a lot of places are getting hit hard this year. It all feels so....precursory. I don't know if that is the right word, but I don't think we have seen the main events. I pray that your ride is over for now though, and these aftershocks are just that....and quickly fade!

**good vibes going out to ALL our friends in NZ**

I'm glad to see you're doing ok! It seems most of the ATS 2010 quake watchers had wondered about you for a while, (I know I did) and waited for you to show up so that we knew you are safe! Sorry this thing has put you in a sour mood, and not in the excited mood some would expect you would be, given your contribution, and energy we have all seen from you on this board. It would prolly do the same for any of us here as well. Welcome back!

This is my first "large" quake and I can tell you, it's not that initial quake that has done me in mentally (I am a bag of nerves), it's the last 12 hours waiting for the next big one and having aftershocks twice an hour that send you running...

Haha, that was me! It was a seismic survey in conjunction with ETH Geophysical in Switzerland and I was Field Crew Leader. For our 'source' we used (generally, but sometime more) 1/3 of a stick of Magnum Powergel. It was hard, but fun and interesting work....quad bikes, Hilti Drills with 1inch diameter metre long rock bits, generator-driven, gravel, explosions, hi-viz, cables, geophones...it was like living in a Boys' Own Annual except the Women were perfectly capable, of course!

I will try to find the results... I know that at least the preliminary results have been published...aha!:

It was a great experience...I worked on all three of the survey sites: Canterbury Plains, Alpine Fault (Spring's Junction/Calf Paddock) and Ostler Fault.

Moorfnz, surely you know how to behave in an emergency.
You'll manage it, but it is not yet over. There will be aftershocks, possibly even one or another magnitude 6 quake.

Stay strong!

Ohhh, I came over to the team, which you were probably part of, and asked them what they were up to because the bangs were driving my dogs mad!! Small world..!

Oh yes, we have earthquake kits etc and know how to behave - funny how that all disappears completely out of your head when you find yourself on the lawn, standing in snow, in your knickers!!

Oh, by the way, that link has some of the information that you might find relevant.

No, you were in a field at the time by the water race near the Old West Coast Road end of Waddington
