Thoughts are with Christchurch

Almost unbelievable that Christchurch has had four more significant quakes today – luckily no serious injuries, but the psychological impact must be wearying.

They were:

  • 1.58 pm – magnitude 5.8 quake, 8km deep and centred 20km north east of Lyttelton
  • 2.06 pm – magnitude 5.3 quake, 10km deep and centred 20km east of Christchurch
  • 3.18 pm – magnitude 6.0 quake, 6km deep and centred 10km north of Lyttelton
  • 4.50 pm – magnitude 5.0 quake, 10km deep and centred 20km north east of Lyttelton

There’s also been nine sub 5.0 quakes today also.

Let’s just hope this is the worse of it.
