Not anywhere near New Zealand.

Good luck over there. Was browsing some news on it and came across the following. Just in case anyone is interested there.



"Thirty-four councillors have arrived in Christchurch today to help victims with the psychological impact of the disaster.

The extra councillors will join 50 victim support staff already helping those in need.

Call 0800 RELATE to arrange a time to see a councillor, or to have one come to your home."

They showed on the news a cruise ship off New Zealand that supposedly was hit by a rouge wave it looked pretty scary. All they said was there was a storm but don't they bybass storms.

I hope there is nothing brewing under the waters there do you guys know of any volcanoes beneath.

How has your weather been.

Also have you noticed anything unusual like animals insects different behavior or and sky differences that might have been noticable.

I only ask because many have said there were differences before earthquakes.

"The Darfield earthquake and its aftershocks have caused a great deal of traffic to the GeoNet website. For the first three days the website had over fifteen million, eighteen million and forty million requests for Saturday, Sunday and Monday respectively".

Geonet News
Have you Cantabrians posting here been filling in the Felt Reports?
I've saved all the reports for use on my map blog. I see Waddington a few times, mostly just on the larger aftershocks, is that you MoorfNZ?
I know you guys have other things to do but filling out a report helps with research. This is a globally significant quake, a lot is being learned from this.
It may help keep your minds occupied as well.

If you look at the graph on that link the reports are growing each day, I guess folks down there have the spare time to fill in the reports, what with the schools and most businesses still closed.

GNS have also issued mini-siesmogrph machines to some households around the area, they are the size of a cigerrette packetand are hooked into peoples PC's that send readings back to GNS. First time they been used in NZ, developed by Stanford Uni. in the US
I'm not sure how you ask for one. There are 200 of them already out there.

Didn't see that, but there were 2 significant storms, one before the quake and one afterwards, with very high winds 90-140km passed through the country.
Do you have a link saying where it was.?

People should keep checking the Dr Quigs website ( google " Dr Quigs", my hyperlinking is borked :/)as he is working hard on site and it doesn't have the hyperbole of the media reports.
It has excellent information regarding the NIL possibility of the Lyteelton Volcano reactivating etc...

Was a quiet night compared with others but I had a terrible night - woke frequently. Have woken up feeling very sick/bad stomach - back to bed for me


Muzzy - yes, Waddington ones are me (usually) - I haven't filled in as many as I'd like but circumstances have meant it's not been main priority or I haven't been at my PC - I may fill some in retrospectively.

Out of interest, many of my local friends in Chch and here on the Plains register swaying movements and boat-like feelings, as do I, yet most of these events don't seem to tie in with a quake report. Is this usual?

Does anyone else have teh sick feeling in their stomach about something we havent looked at? I just feel like, theres going to be another big one. Like the Napier Earthquake. It may be lack of sleep but i've never felt this way before and im used to all nighters thanks to the party life. Also water is safe to drink again yet the waimak isnt, so dont go fishing or whatever.

Hi Grant,

I gather you are in Christchurch. My heart goes out to all you Christchurch people, my fellow NZers.

Also, Hawkes Bay had another one this afternoon after the Tuesday one - 5.2 and 20 metres deep.

It started with our Wanganui quake (where I live). I don't know if these quakes are related.

What really concerns me is that seismologists now seem agreed that the Chch one was on an unknown faultline. In fact they seem to be saying it was a combination of 3 different faultlines.

Hi cat, thanks for your support. Yes, there have been a few biggies today in the North Island too. I'm guessing there is some kind of relation, although not sure if it is possible to tell.

Lots of people still got a bad feeling there is more to come here in Christchurch. Its been an eerily quiet day, then boom about 5 minutes ago we got a very sharp rumble.





Reference Number: 3369391
NZST: Thu, Sep 9 2010 6:27 pm
Magnitude: 4.0
Depth: 5 km
Details: 10 km south-west of Christchurch


www.geonet.org.nz...

Must say, it felt way bigger. Maybe the shallow depth and its close proximity to the city was why it felt so bad.

It is terrifying.

But I have to say I am proud of the way everyone is doing their job, and a lot of people are going far beyond the call of duty.

And I am amazed at people's bravery.

Proud to be a kiwi.

Yep, everyone has handled the situation fantastic. It's comforting to know that NZ has great people and plans in place to deal with such a disaster.

Thumbs up to everyone
