toopid EQs.

More broken stuff, More liquifaction (About another 50 or so barrows) Munted street AGAIN. Flooded. Daylight through already warped walls, and now I can poke my finger through the top of my bedroom door, even though its closed.

We're already redzoned, but this made it a whole lot worse. They are already not worring about fixing the road due to the number of poeple that have abandoned the street. But our wee plot sits with 5 other residents with non flooded homes, but bent/warped and cracked walls etc.

Hate to think what its like now, at last check it was 120mm lower at front than the back, and 100mm lower at the lounge than the side of the house, and the garage wall (leaning over) was 50mm higher again.

This was after Feb.. 




And now my daily drive to work consists of 5km/h or less to avoid potholes..

Talkiet: I really got away scot free today... Never lost power, NO damage to land, house or contents. I feel very lucky, expecially given I was ONLY 800 METRES FROM THE EPICENTRE!

I grabbed this off my security system
