My place has sustained some damage. Footage i filmed after the second decent aftershock.
No doubt you seen the city photos but the damage is the 'Burbs is surreal mountains of silt and damage, it was so short and soooo violent. The damage is so extreme, i'm surprised there was no death other than the city center. Quite a chunk of the south island fels this and aftershocks.
ou get maybe 1-2 seconds to respond before everything starts to shake, you know instantly that is this everywhere. You feel it in your bones, the whole ground shakes, it doesn't matter how 'big' or 'earthquake proof' it is.
It will shake. The ground will turn to liquid. It feel like and looks like hell is rising up out of the ground.
Iv noticed a pattern that it started sep 4 then over the months the shocks went closer to the coast, like a burb or fart soon there a real release.
Christchurch is a changed city.
It will take time to heal these wounds, its a surreal time.
