New Zealand Earthquake
« on: November 13, 2016, 11:56:51 AM »
I'm not sure how many of you guys watch the news, but just last night there was a 7.8 magnitude earthquake off the coast of one of New Zealand's South Island.

It triggered 3 large aftershocks and at least 3 tsunami waves.

It's very devastating and my thoughts and prayers go out to all of those who have been affected by this earthquake.

It wasn't an earthquake. Craig is just trying for another daughter.

It doesn't help that one of the cities that got it worst doesn't have buildings well-equipped for earthquakes. On top of that, near the coast, there were about one and a half to two and a half metres (5-8 feet) of water in some places. The only thing worse than a natural disaster of this caliber, is not being prepared for this type of natural disaster.

I wonder if Craig was affected by it, and if so, how bad.

I hope he isn't severely affected, however I hope everyone who has been affected by this is okay and recovers well, it will take a while because people will probably have to clean the streets and maybe even look for people who didn't manage to get to higher ground or have been trapped by falling rubble etc.

It's a hard time.

I wasn't affected, it was too far away.

Last I heard there were two deaths caused by the Earthquake.

On thing I would say to people living along that fault is the chances of another quake further down that fault are probably increased so be prepared in case of that.
