After shakes in Christchurch keep coming

Every time an aftershake comes we are holding our breath. The last big one was just before 8.00 AM this morning and the whole house was shaking again. On the blog of  Four paws and whiskers I found an amazing link

This website shows all the quakes, their depth and the area in order from the first on on saturday up till now. Very impressive. Click on the link to play them of  ; Christchurch quake map

  2. Hi Marja

    Ty for the link will go there soon. Yes, aftershocks are always the by-product of earthquakes. What I have been reading about is that the building codes in NZ are quite impressive and structures have built-in earthquake resistors. What needs to be done is to keep listening to earthquake advisories and take all necessary precautions to keep you and your family safe. New Zealand is in my prayers. Take care. Blessings to all.

  6. we remembered you all today in my Church ESOL class, and I talked about it.

    Can you imagine, while we in Auckland slept through, friends and relatives in USA, Swizterland and Peru knew before us?

    Please take care.

    Sorry about the lost photos - irreplaceable memories.
    Just been reading about Godley House - a part of the heritage here that will be a great loss to that area.
    Stay safe
