New as in September's or another new one, or an increase in rupture of the September one?

Yes, New as in September 2010.
That's the Greendale fault revealed by the Darfield quake in September last year. One of the two near the alpine range I mentioned in my post above. That is thought to be new, since September 4, 2010. That one still has the seismologists guessing.

www.geerassociation.org...

There is no known fault running beneath Lyttleton. Not publically and officially known anyway. Lyttleton was the epicentre for the quake yesterday. I guess there could be a fault line about to be drawn in the map sometime soon.

Neither the September 2010 nor this earthquake yesterday are on a known major faultline.

An interesting aspects of similarity between the 'Darfield quake'/Christchurch September 2010 earthquake and this one centred in Lyttleton yesterday was the strong ground accelaration.

www.scientists.org.nz...

That strong horizontal direction of the quake has resulted directly in severe results.

Tell your brother the journey in to the unknown is not only a challenge but exciting....of course it won't be an easy decision to lay roots elsewhere but bit by bit, day by day they will grow strong.

It can't get any worse from here on in so the only way out is up....meaning there is light at the end of the tunnel. A couple of years from now he will look back and see how far he and his wife have come. They are only going to get stronger and so will they as a couple. Perhaps they want to pack themselves in a car and see where it heads? I'm sure they can pick up odd jobs as they go along. Tell them to follow their gut instincts.

If they really do want to leave, they want to consider it over the coming few weeks before winter sets in.

If they have kids...they should wait a month or two and plan well ahead.

According to what i've read, it's a whole new fault line, but they are treating it as an aftershock from last Septembers quake.

A scientist was on the news earlier saying the Sep quake must have placed lots of stress on the fault line that ruptured yesterday. He also said yesterdays quake would possibly have placed lots of stress somewhere else, and thats what they are trying to work out.

seems to make sense, but on the other hand maybe they know about as much as us......


That does seem contradictory doesn't it? I agree. You raise a good point. I also hear government seismologists from Australia insisting it is an aftershock. I am not a seismologist but would guess these two major earthquakes although located in different places relative to Christchurch and seemingly not sharing a common known fault line are indeed related.

Somehow.

how can it be an aftershock if its from another faultline an aftershock comes from the same faultline settling down after a quake. if theres alot of movement in the plates in that area it can cause a quake on another faultline preveosly dorment

Rather rash comment to throw around about HAARP and other similar sites, considering you seem to know nothing about scalar electromagnetics.

However, I am not disagreeing that this is most likely a natural earthquake.

i spoke to my mum today and last year she had a vision, this was after the Sept quake, that there would be a very large earthquake and then part of NZ breaking off.

at the time i rubbished the idea saying shed watched to much tv, but now im not so sure, now she could have mis-interpreted the glacier breaking off as part fo the south island breaking off, but on Monday night we both had really bad feelings, my mum had a severe headache which usually happens when she is sensing something big coming

whilst she was at work doing some training for her apprentices the pressure in her head released and she knew something bad had happened, later in the day she was told by her business partner that the earthquake had happened.

the weird thing is, i now feel the same as i did on Monday night, and my mum has the headache again, i hope to god we are just reacting to what happened yesterday

I have a really good news story coming out of the quake....

A husband has been pacing a building outside where his wife worked for almost all of the day, anxious and in tears; put off telling his son his mother may not be coming home.....

and they just pulled her out of the building ALIVE!!!

is that good or what!

the geezar in the link i posted earlyer predicted the quake on the 23rd of dec and it was said it was all down to planetary alighnment i dought haarp can configure the planets into alghinment yet. so unless he fluked it it must be natural

New Zealand Prime Minister John Key has declared a national state of emergency as the death toll from Tuesday's earthquake in Christchurch rose to 75.

Police have said there is "incredible carnage right throughout the city", with "bodies littering the streets".

More than 300 people are still missing. Forty-eight were pulled out from collapsed buildings alive overnight.


www.bbc.co.uk...

Hopefully they'll find most of the missing people otherwise the death toll will be a lot higher than it is currently.

I still can't get my head around the CTV building where search and rescue gave up soon after the heavy rain hit early this afternoon....

they say it's highly likely no one would had survived underneath the concrete slabs and rubble but I can't help but wonder if they gave up too soon because I've just got a gut feeling.

I've seen people pulled out from much worse after a week in Haiti and Pakistan.

I wish the Israeli specialist search and rescue were on hand; they've done this so many times in many countries whereas our search and rescue teams just don't have the more specialized equipment - nor do the Australians. This would be the 1st quake our rescue teams have done - even though I have great admiration for them.

I don't care the cost of the Israelis coming in if it means we can find even one life alive in the CTV Bldg. Keep in mind, when you have some weight on you, no water and in a dusty area; one is hardly going to have the energy to call out for help.

In Haiti and Pakistan the ground was relatively stable after the quakes.

In Christchurch there have been level 4 - 6 quakes occurring almost hourly for the 24 hours after the quake.
There have been smaller tremors every 10 minutes or so in between the larger aftershocks.
People are reporting difficulties even standing up; the moment they think it's safe to try again another tremor knocks them down again.
Between the constant shaking, uneven sinking, and the pouring rain, the city has become a flooded, smoky war zone with masonry constantly tumbling from above.
The streets for about 9 blocks in the centre of Christchurch have liquefied. Buildings are sinking into them. You cannot drive on them. You definitely can't get cranes into that area.

If you are directing search and rescue teams you have as great a responsibility to their safety as to the safety of those you are rescuing. In these conditions the organisers have had to endure the heartbreak of knowing people are trapped and left without help, and knowing if they send rescue teams into high-rise buildings which are visibly collapsing as they watch, the struggle to free those trapped will most likely accelerate the collapse, killing both the trapped victims and the rescuers.

New Zealanders are brave people with strong bonds of mateship. They are used to co-operating in times of hardship and they've had plenty of experience in earthquake rescue. I'm confidant they are doing everything possible to rescue those who can be rescued.

I'm not dissing them by any means....I know they are doing the best of the abilities but they do have very little earthquake experiance and most certainly not of this magnitude of search and rescue, are ill equipped for deeper pockets of some of the buildings.

Having the Israeli teams there would most certainly help and also train some of our search and rescue teams for the future. The purchase of some of the Israeli equipment would be vital.

Just speculating, could the approach of this comet/planet(Ellinin/Nubiri) have anything to do with this?
It is said to be approaching in our southern hemisphere, and it apparantly has a massive electro magnetic field.
This could of confussed the whales into 'grounding' ,and could of also caused plate/earth shifting resulting in an earthquake.
What you think?

Not sure if these have been posted yet.

But some Hi-res images of the disaster and on-going rescue effort.

Be warned, some of the images are disturbing/graphic/bloody.
