Shag Rock to Shag Pile
Just to let you all know we are alive and all ok here in Christchurch. Thank you for your texts and emails of support and encouragement. The team at Seventhwave have all been lucky to escape without injury or any major damage or problems. Power and water is still to come on here and in many other suburbs. The damage from the earthquake has been extensive not just in the central business districts but also out here in the eastern suburbs. Roading and bridges, sewer, water and electricity, extensive damage totally disrupting everything and any movement. Most drastic is that the iconic Shag Rock has turned to shag pile. Most of the cliffs around Mt Pleasant to Sumner have been drastically changed, many houses sustaining damage and so many with their backs totally broken. Check the RSA and Sumner Community Centre below. For an aerial view of Christchurch earthquake check this footage. And if that's not enough we've got 'aftershocks', a daily occurrence, you can see them all on the Christchurch Quake Map.
Want to help the Christchurch Earthquake Appeal. Donations to the New Zealand Red Cross.
We're back into gear from Monday and look forward to catching up with you all soon.
