Earthquake update

Well we stayed at my parents house last night since they have their water and power back. Unfortunatly most people our side of town including us are without water and we have no idea how long that will be for. Christchurch has officially declared a State of Emergency.
I'm just so thankful we managed to get a shower today and the kids got a bath :) I suddenly realised how much we take something as simple as running tap water for granted. We are back home now and we have a block of porta loo's set up down the street but there is a huge storm coming tonight with gale force winds so that should be fun :( We also have a tanker truck that comes every so often to distribute water but we have to boil it because there's been possible contamination from the sewerage lines. Good thing we still have power!
The original earthquake was 7.1 magnitude and we have been having a lot of aftershocks. The biggest hit us at about 5am this morning and was roughly about a 5. We are expected to keep having after shocks for the next 4 or 5 days. All school has been cancelled until at least Weds.
The city center is one of the worst areas hit and is completely cordoned off by police. Civil defence has acted quickly but I think we are all surprised that the army has yet to be dispatched. We had a curfew last night from 7pm untill 7am and several people were arrested for breaking it. There's just too many idiots trying to get into the city for a look.
Anyway that's about it from me. We took a few pics on our way to my parents place last night but they are not the best quality as it was dark and we were in a rush.

New Earthquake pics

Just sent hubby out on a water finding mission and he came back with some pics of our neighbourhood.


OMG I'm totally freaked! We were hit by a 7.4 magnitude earthquake last night at around 4am. I've never felt one anywhere near that big before. We were lucky because we are right on the beach so we were cushioned by all the sand. In fact we are one of the few in Christchurch to still have power although our water is gone :( Aparently roads all around the city have been blocked off by police and buildings have collapsed. My parents showed up at 7am saying there was only one road they could take to get to us because they all had giant cracks in them! We are not sure how long our power may hold out and apparently they are talking about evacuating people in our area due to sewerage problems so if you don't hear from me for a little while it's because of that. I'm sure everything will be fine though :)

Here's a couple of pics I found online of damage
