To whom it may concern.

7.8 quake

Continuous 5.0 aftershocks

Tsunami has already swept the coast.

I guess no pace if perfect, especially if located dead square on top of the Ring of Fire.

I have a couple of friends in separate parts of the South Island , both safe but deeply shocked , one even contemplating coming home and she's been there over 20 years.
Nothing is fool proof for a sufficiently talented fool!!!!

A 7.8 quake is no small thing and can bring down a lot of infrastructure, crumble a road system, bring down bridges and damage everything standing beyond repair.

Even the 5 point aftershocks are enough to cause severe damage in built up areas. The occasional 5 point quakes in California cause billions of $$$ damage to structures and networks.

A good reminder that from a location to live point of view, conditions in the UK are benign compared to many other places in the world.

Kiwis and Maoris alike are used to quakes. We had several when I lived there many years ago (near Christchurch, South Island). NZ is an amazing place.

I'm moving there myself full time. I was there a few months ago and am going back in August to look at properties.

RE: The New Zealand Experience
We nearly emigrated there...when were first married....had it all sorted job offers for time served carpenters in the Christchurch area were many , housing was just about sorted ,paperwork sorted and a start date .....SS....bottled out , many of my friends who have been there love the place....i sometimes look back and regret my decision , but there you go , a farmer friend had a trip over a few years back and was seriously thinking of selling up and moving there ....then ill health put the mockers on that idea ...
To take a look back in times past, its easy to see future direction you need to be.
