In ChCh they put a lot of hardfill into the Lyttelton port to extend the land, maybe in Kaikoura they can do something similar to add something on the waterfront to benefit the tourist industry. The pic/video of the three stuck cattle show the immense upheaval. Apparently, 100,000 landslides.
I've seen 100,000 mentioned a few times, I can't obviously verify, but that seems a LOT. Is it likely accurate? I am no expert but I have my doubts.
