Post 'Quake Scenes From Central Christchurch

A month after the February 22 earthquake which devastated parts of Christchurch, the central city remains a "no-go zone."

Most Christchurch people who were outside the central city when the earthquake struck have only seen snippets of the damage on the TV news.

This is a just released  official Civil Defence video of inner Christchurch. A huge percentage of the city is either flattened or will have to demolished. Nobody has any idea of the damage to the sewer systems yet.

While our "shake" was tiny compared to that which hit Japan, nature  has definitely delivered a "king hit" to our beautiful town.

If you've ever been to Christchurch, here's your chance to play "spot the street".

We'll be back!
