So, is Christ Church going to fall off into the ocean? Neat map BTW. Most of these seem to be in the 3-4 Mag range. Has there been much damage from the after shocks since the initial 7.1? The geo-scientist in me thinks that Earthquakes can be kinda fun if you and all you cherish are out of harms way. I hope you came through the big one OK.
A couple of M5+ aftershocks have caused more damage to already weakened structures. We spoke to family down their last night and it has bee a difficult few days as they are continually being shaken and it wears down the old nerves a bit. Many people are have trouble sleeping etc.

I remember the night we had one in the UK. It was many miles from where I was, but I clearly felt it and new exactly what it was; even though I have never felt one before.
It was a mad feeling, compounded by happening late at night. With no one to talk to a quick Google told me what had happened.
I remember it well, it was centred around Birmingham, I was living in Matlock at the time and it shook the bed and woke us all up. About 2''2 I think it was.....
The biggest one I have felt was centred just 3kms down the valley from me where I live now, the sound was what got me, it was like thunder but with no clouds and then a huge jolt as the ripple came through the ground. I swear you could see it coming like a wave in the earth.
