Kip Brook: Like its iconic cathedral much of Christchurch is slowly rocking itself to pieces. It is yesterday’s city with shipping containers protecting people and motorists from quakes. Other containers are prized open like sardines cans used for safe shopping precincts. This is a city like no other.
We’ve now had 40 earthquakes between magnitude 5 and 6 here in Christchurch since September 4, 2010. We’ve had over 10,000 quakes in total and nearly 600 quakes have been five kilometres or less in depth. As a result tens of thousands of homes and buildings are destroyed and being pulled down or have collapsed. More>>
