Shakeytown! Christchurch Hit by New Quakes

Christchurch Cathedral after the February 'Quake

In the last hour and a half, my home town  Christchurch New Zealand’  has been hit by four big earthquakes, including a Richter scale 5.5  and a 6.0.

There is considerable damage on the East side of Christchurch, and several  reported injuries. No reported deaths so far, touch wood.

We live on the west side of town and suffered no damage.

I was driving during the 6.0 and it was like being on a mini roller coaster!

As I type this, we just got hit with what I estimate was a 4.0.

Thanks for all the emails from Australia, the US and other parts of NZ.

We’re all fine here.

Signing off from Shakeytown.

Woops and there’s another wee one!

And another quite big one!

I’d better finish this post. Its obviously provoking them!

  1. Just heard about this. Please know that there are people in the US who care about this and are praying for the people of Christchurch. The way earthquakes unsettle people psychologically is hard to explain to those who have never experienced them. God bless.

    1. Hi Joy
      You are dead right – it is the psychological impact we are dealing with more than anything this time round. It was a bit of a rough night with a 4.7 round 2.30am and the children both woke and got a bit distressed and the adults have had little sleep. Patience is very much a virtue today 🙂

  2. Hi Trevor,
    I first got the news from Drudge and came here right after. It must be rather stressful to live with the thought of such a recurring nightmare in the back of your mind all of the time. Please find comfort in knowing that your family and all of Christchurch are in our prayers. God Bless you my brother
