i'm in Christchurch , NZ.
I've already lived through last Septembers big quake, and all I can say is,
this was 10x worse than that
It was much shallower and it was extremely violent. I was a t work in a factory at the time, and the whole building was shaking violently. I cant
believe it never came down.
We all just laid donw beside the Lathes and covered our heads. There was no time to get out, and no time to move or think clearly. Very scary.
After the quake the street outside work is now liquified and its like a river running down the road.
It took me 1.5hrs to drive home because it was gridlock. Me and the family are extremely lucky to be alive.
I can tell you now, there will be many fatalities after this. There are buildings down everywhere, liquifaction everywhere and the central city is
like a WW2 blitz city.
I cant believe it. We are all in shock. Large aftershocks still hitting. The ground has been shaking away every 10 mins.
Will keep you all posted
