Last Monday 2 significant aftershocks shook Christchurch measuring 5.6 and 6.3 on the richter scale.
The 6.3 earthquake at 2.20pm was captured by security cameras at the ITM store in Dyers Road in Christchurch with customers urgently trying to take cover and staff also running to protect themselves.

My goodness how much more can these poor people take. We should be uniting as a country and lobbying the government to stop all other spending and focus funds and energies on rebuilding their community somewhere else – urgently. Do more lives have to be lost before this is achieved?

lol.. how much more poor people can take? Japan=15,457 deaths, 5,389 injured,[ and 7,676 people missing, Chch=300? Number of Chch eq=2. Hawkes bay and this minor thing Number of Japanese,Pakistan,Indonesia EQ in total history=30+Counting with at least 5000 dead each time. You poeple have no idea what disaster is. On the scale of 1 to 20 you are sitting somewhere are 2.5 on having an idea what a horrible disaster is.
