Earthquake

Had an earthquake here at 4.34am last Friday.
This link graphically (depth and radius) shows the initial quake and the resulting aftershocks. We're still getting them.

Re: Earthquake

Wow. Must have been frightening.
That map is great! Very informative, yet easy to understand. A web graphic designer's baby, I'm sure.
It seems like the aftershocks are going on for quite some time. Be well & all around you.

Photos from Christchurch

The number of aftershocks is amazing, flotsam. Can they all be felt, or are many of them only detected by seismic equipment? Either way, that would be nerve-wracking...

You can feel most of them.
My house has not been affected structurally (I hope) but they certainly rattle things. They are getting less frequent but still quite strong.

I think my nerves would be among the "things" that get rattled. I've read that buildings in NZ have been built with earthquakes in mind, so I hope that yours is none the worse for the shaking.

Re: Earthquake

Another 11 aftershocks already today up to 4.3 on richter scale.
It's amazing that there hasn't been any loss of life.

Re: Earthquake

I'm glad you're keeping us informed because the US media seems to have moved on to other things days ago.

PS: Your crashbang link isn't working.
