4.17pm: Operation commander Dave Lawry says he does not believe the CTV site is "survivable". He said there were a number of overseas students in it. "We'll do our absolute best for your people".

He said he would not "risk my staff for people I believe there is no chance of survivability." When asked how certain he was that people in the building could not have survived, he replied "100%".



The CTV building has got to be one of the most heartwrenching stories so far. Living people were trapped here, cameras were sent in and saw them, now the efforts have been called off for various reasons. What a tragedy.

CTV presenters whom we are accustomed to seeing on the TV are gone. forever.

this is terrible i was holding on to hope that they would be able to enter again as they said earlier that it had been called off but i was clinging to the hope that people would still be alive
this is heart wrenching my prayer are with the families that have lost their loved ones here and overseas they will not be forgotten!!

Maybe it will help, if u can tell us if anything, events leading up to the quake, maybe discuss with family and friends, events that maybe, might have been noticed, or felt prior to the quake itself, with the thought that maybe information might be used too better prepare others who read, and follow this tragic event.
Know that we do care and do try to help but sometimes we are just as helpless as those hurt and suffering and knowing that we are indeed trying to help in all of our humanly ways. And knowing this truth, may give to some hope.
A sad friend.

On Topic does the major fault line that links the north island to the south run through nelson or bypass?. sorry not sure a quake in wellington would not be good either most likey wipe city out followed by a tsunami which im guessing would hit you in nelson too

They will rebuild. Christchurch will be a new city. The gothic architecture will be gone, but there will be buildings to suit the conditions. Many may leave, but I am picking most will stay and adapt.

People forget that Kiwis really are tough. Aotearoa has been hewn by hand out of mud, clay, larva, and rock. Everything will be replaced and Kiwis will stand even stronger. Once the terrible bloody grief is done with.

There will be other worse disasters though and Kiwis of all people are conditioned by their climate and attitude to face them. Don't underestimate them. They won't be all .ing off to Australia.

Without looking at my map but there's about 5 or 6 smaller fault lines right across the northern part of the South Island and I think a major fault line runs through there to Wgton however I think Wgton is on the Indo-Australia fault line and CHCH is on the Pacific fault line....but don't quote me on that until I have a look.

Very true however they need jobs as quickly as possible although no doubt the younger ones can perhaps have an opportunity of picking up some newly created apprenticeships for building, plumbing, electrical etc.

We have had consistent aftershocks since last Septembers quake, although in the last 6wks its been a bit quieter. We all had started to move on and forget.

Then, just a couple of days before yesterdays quake there were a few minor wobbles, but nothing huge. We didn't think much of it.

Also, like last time, our cat had acted totally different in the lead up to the quake. She was climbing up on us for days and rubbing right into our faces. This was all in the days leading up to the big quake yesterday. ( i actually said to my wife there might be another big quake, but jokingly)

There were no other signs at all really. Everyone had just begun to think it had all ended since last years shake.

Yeah, for me the Cathedral is the biggie since for most New Zealanders its the first think you think of for Christchurch, sortta like the Empire States building in New York or the Golden Gate bridge for San Fransisco its the structure that represents the city. Last time I was in Christchurch was as a kid back in around 87 for a family trip around the South Island during the school holidays, went to the top of the cathedrals tower looked out over the square and the family bought some chips from a vendor outside took in the stalls and buskers, wandered around the city in the crisp morning air.

Wont be able to do that ever again
(the Cathedral that is)

Ok, I have not posted on here for a very long long time, soo, here we go..My thinking is, as always seeing what the geoengineering of the that planet has been doing in my area like crazy lately and the involvement of HAARP in that. What we need to see is pictures of the sky prior to the earthquake, ie.. the cloud formations that a HAARP creates. Then again, this anomaly could have created by the recent full moon pull, or something else that the white skies are blocking out, granted we did we recieve some pretty heavy solar radiation today from the solar flare/outburst..my 2 cents..cheers all and look up because that is where it is coming from...vooodmon out!

I don't know why but why do I get a gut feeling about the CTV building....did the search and rescue give up too quickly? I've seen much worse in other quake disasters where at least one survivor was pulled days later. I wish they'd bring in the far more specialised Israeli and Japanese teams.

Juan de fuca fault vancouver island, I have been feeling very strange for the last couple of days and am pretty psychic, the HAARP that caused most of the recent earthquaqes is located in alaska, research facility my ass, we/ I live under a constant white sky any patch of blue is covered up by planes that always follow the same path home. And as the other top post talks about...they are using Nikola's technology, yes tesla's stuff, they know not what they do, they..with there experiments punched a hole in the magnetosphere a couple of years ago with their experiments into the unknown allowing the solar wind in, these people that do this are criminals and need to be prosecuted at the highest level. the unfortunate thing is that the PTB control the courts. So, what do we the people in what ever country we may live in do? What can we do? For starters we can talk on here, and then we can gather in a square or a meeting place somewhere, where ever that may be and make our collective voice heard, us collective canadian souls are generally very silent because of our warmongering neighbour to the south but we have just had about enough of Pipelanistan etc and perhaps more of us will wake up in time to change our own government before it is too late for us too. cheers TT ..and my bet, since today's news was focused on libya the USA has an agenda there too as wll as Dubai, and every where else in the middle east that they have their nuclear powered aircraft carriers with live ammo on board including, tomahawks with active nuclear war.s .ed for Iran to appeaase isreal which has itself about , well, over 500 nuclear war.s, some delivererable by plane, but mostly delivered by the the the jewish lobbyists in the USA. need I say more? Isreal has underground bunkers for some of there attack aircraft supplied by USA of course to the tune of 5 billion a year + the black op funding.. sorry i'm ranting because I am not a zionist, but jewish blood flows through my veins and i worked and drove those NMF ( nasty mother #ers) like kissenger and his cohorts, Rocherfeller, global de-popullation etc, their body guards sat beside me, if you want names.. pm me..g'nite all and enjoy..TT
