thanks for the link love the fact that objects can float or sink because of relitive density of sub soil conditions

the sand volcanos are also caused by this effect?

xploder


That is exactly what happened in the North Beach Marina area during the San Francisco Quake in 1989 that caused so much damage, that area is all landfill of course it's sand. Most of San Francisco is built on solid rock opposed to the coastal areas.

Hoping the shaking stops soon, since I have been through I know how scary it can be. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

I understand NZ is a retirement destination for some 'elite', (20 acre max. please).
Perhaps no one is safe 'anywhere'.
Could be a message with cosmic 'intention'.
One-Is-Won.

Could be a message from the tyrants that be as they 'do' have the technology to make it happen though I don't believe they would do this to themselves, their own 'party'. That wouldn't make much sense now would it?

Sometimes one's Anger can have unintended consequences as when Soros's shorts didn't work out as planned during the dot-com fiasco. Strike One for his 'play' on the British pound, no? Strike Too.....

Is anything any better?
One pushes, the other shoves.
Back to 'square one'.
I see no 'progress'.....*Y*ou?

The Andromeda 'strain' is not as 'foreign' as Follywood would have you believe. That would be a 'man-made' construct though will Not work out as planned. It is my hope you won't have to seA for yourself.


I spoke with the TDAmeritrade 'Managers' just yesterday for an hour on the phone. The message was for the CEO. He ensured myself the message would be 'received'. I told him he has 7 days to 'rectify' the situation. We will see soon enough if the message was 'U'nderstood. "Bbrg". It could have 'viral' consequences of it's own kind. The 'clients' could only benefit in thAt end.
~Fiduciary RespOsibility~

Just a thought.....or two.....
Next.....

Thank you for that post. My boyfriend lives in Christchurch and he said they had aftershocks all day yesterday. I am so scared for him, his whole family is shocked and everyone is scared. The local news said that they should be ready for another BIG shock. I keep telling him to get on a plane to the States right away so he can be safe. But he doesn't want to leave his family.

As in JFK Jr. etc.?
Simply amazing Gorman91
Some folks never learn!
We'll take 'note' of this none-the-less.

Care-full G-man, the Pacific is in the 'Ring of Fire'.

Uh


No!

It was purely a geological process and is a consequence of living on a tectonically-active island that straddles a plate boundary.

No kooky nefarious sky faeries with vengeance on their minds, or HAARP-related incidents, just a purely geological process.

Aftershocks are ongoing, had a few decent ones this morning; they seem to be every 20 minutes or so....

...we CAN expect that there will be a decent aftershock of around magnitude 6, and we can also expect the Alpine Fault to rupture drastically sometime inthe next fifty years.

Update from Christchurch,

a few strong aftershocks durng the night and a few this morning too. They don't seem to be coming in the same numbers as they were yesterday, but it's still very early days.

They are expected to continue for weeks.

No decision yet as to whether businesses will be allowed to open tomorrow in the CBD.

Strong wind forecast fro this afternoon an throughout Sunday night. Not good for buildings that have already been partially damaged. Everyone advised to stay at home today unless its very important.

Me and my family are having a lazy day watching movies! (with the odd afershock to contend with...lol)

ALL water must be boiled for at least three minutes.
The CCC have found c.200 leaks in the ater mains and if this is overloaded by people having showers, doing their washing etc then there is the high chance of sewage incursion.

Going without showers/bathing and clean clothes isn't going to kill people...so, conserve the water for essential services, which means children (babies) and animals.

Take care grant and be safe.

Yep, over in Woolston. Escaped relatively unscathed with only our chimneys damaged (and now dismantled).

The atftershocks are less regular, but still ongoing.

Same here, came off lucky I think. Got some damaged contents inside, but the house is fine. (hornby)

Cant believe how much of a scary experience it was. It's so hard to describe it.

Man, I cant even remember the big one clearly now. Its a blur!

I got the text from USGS after the EQ happened and was going to post it originally but I thought I'd be bashed at for "Oh common another earthquake and you have to post it?"

Anyway, glad that everyone seems to be physically OK and I hope it stays that way.

Prepare for the worst, hope for the best

Just checking in again... we're still rocking and rolling here in Canterbury - latest one (half hour ago) was a 5.0 centred near Lyttelton.

Didn't get much sleep last night - aftershocks jolting and rocking house every hour and a half or so. When we visited our local township (Darfield) everyone, including us, were walking around looking like zombies.. we're all on edge.

Am just about getting round to seeing local damage - here's a formerly-straight fence line up the road...

Hey Aoraki - good to see you still posting.. not a nice night, was it?

Here in Waddington (you know, near the pies!), we're experiencing very frequent up/down wavy-time sensations - I assume these are recorded on the drums... what causes this type of movement as opposed to the jolt and side-ways crack we also get??

Stay safe.

Friend of ours 20yr old daughter is down there studying, she phoned and said it was terrifying, aftershocks all the time, her flatmates and her are staying home today, playing guess the size of the quake, they run for cover under the doorway when it starts, guess the size and then check on Geonet to see what size it was when its over

She's at Lincoln.

Hi all, this is my first ever post so be kind

I live in Christchurch, been here all my 34 years of life
This quake was the most scared I have ever been. We get quakes and most arent too bad, but this was so far above what I have felt before the others just not in the same league.

Was having trouble getting out of bed, standing etc and was so hard to get to my lil boys room to make sure he was ok. Luckily he was.

As I am typing another aftershock has hit - another bigger aftershock I should say.
You can hear them before you can feel the shaking.

We have had some bigger aftershocks this afternoon within the last 50 min or so.
Its gotten real old real fast let me tell you

Everything is still surreal. Its an odd feeling when CNN, BBC, Foxnews etc are showing your city and its damage on their main news updates.

Hey Brogue - welcome. I live in Waddington, near Sheffield, not from from epicentre and I agree, it was the most scared I've ever been.

We just had a 5.0 aftershock (about an hour ago) centred near Lyttelton, which we felt strongly here with a jolt and crack - and then one just 10 mins ago that hasn't shown on the GeoNet list yet... in between "quakes" we feel like we're on a boat - lots of swaying and up/down wavy movements.

Stay safe - I agree, it's getting old now, my nerves are shot and I can't relax.
