Yes! The aftershocks are picking up again.
Frozon says that out in Templeton they're feeling them every few minutes.
Oh god this is so scary.

Hey guys!!

Okay, so my earthquake story is DRAMATIC and stuff.

Woke up at 4:30 and sat up just in time to avoid a massive chunk of wall-stuff landing on my bed right where my head had been. I got a scratch on my forehead, but otherwise escaped from that unscathed. Can't say the same for my house. My entire friggin' bedroom has been covered in bricks and plaster from a wall falling out-- though, miraculously, none of my possessions were broken. The bricks somehow just... didn't hit anything but clothes, which I can just shake the dust off of and wash.

Both the TVs at my house fell off their stands, but neither of them broke-- another miracle. My PS2, which was RIGHT under the main TV, somehow managed to not get hit by it. Everything I own is just dusty: nothing more, nothing less.

So yeah, since I am currently missing AN ENTIRE WALL, and the entire house is structurally unsound, I've been staying with my friend Alice out in Lincoln. Problem is, we didn't have power until half an hour ago and my cell phone has gotten lost somewhere, so I'm sorry for worrying everyone.

Overall? THERE IS A WALL MISSING WUT and my forehead got a bit smashed but I'm aaaall good. <3

Hey everyone. I'm alright. Smile My story:

I was awake when it hit, everything began shaking, then the power went off and I could hear all kinds of crashing and banging sounds, that was scary. pale Surveying the damage with a torch, hardly any in my bedroom, just a few topped figurines and wardrobe doors flung open. Same sort of scene in the kitchen, narrowly avoided stepping on broken glass. In my flatmate's room and hallway, a few objects were toppled but that's about it. All of our furniture is standing and the house isn't damaged apart from the chimneys which are dangerous right now as they are crumbling. Our roads look normal too, no sign of fires, looting etc.

Stayed awake for hours before going to sleep. Power came on at around 2pm and Mum called, everyone in our family is fine, thanks God. Went back to sleep after that, was exhausted, still am.

Sorry to anyone unable to get hold of me, my cellphone is nearly out of charge and money. sad The only for me to access the internet is through my Desktop Computer as my phone doesn't have net, but with the power out I had no way to contact anyone except for my flatmate. We can use his phone but still ... I'm scared at not being able to get hold of anyone, have no money for my phone either. pale

Quote :
More bad news I'm afraid guys. According to the news, Canterbury is due for a BIG storm. Seriously heavy rain and gale force winds. Also, they're warning about looking out for small fires, so keep a extinguisher handy!

You have got to be kidding me?! 22.02.11 Earthquakes - A year on. - Page 7 875635

I have been feeling Aftershocks ALL day, even a an actual earthquake or two! Is it me or does anyone else feel dizzy? @_@ If things get any more serious, I'm evacuating ... I'm serious! 22.02.11 Earthquakes - A year on. - Page 7 21673

So many people seem to be lucky. Several people on TV had nearly identical stories to Pyro.

Our neighbours came back from town when it happened. That said a guy had just finished up working at the bar, gone to get in his car, and the wall landed on it. Another 30 seconds later and it would have been different.

Oh and that guy out Darfield who fell from the second story when the wall disappeared. He's discharged now!

I am shocked by your story, but still very much relieved you are well Pyro.

Anyone heard from Chelsea?

Post By Peterofl. 04/09/10, 03:23 pm

Okay everyone! Before we all go to bed tonight I'd like to remind you all of some things. :)

Make sure there is a CLEAR path from your bed to your door, and brace yourself in your door-frame as soon as you feel any movement. The aftershock is likely to be around 6 on the richter scale and will be happening in th next 40 hours. Aftershocks are usually a lot more violent than the actual earthquake. (instead of large movements, they are short rapid ones).

Take down your TV's and lay them flat on the floor, and make sure nothing is likely to fall on your car!

It also helps to sleep with your blinds/curtains open. (I found this out last night when the power went out). Moonlight helps A LOT if you cannot find your way to a torch and stuff.

SLEEP WELL GUYS. TALK TO YOU ALL TOMORROW. <3

Who got a good nights sleep? I had two nervous dogs and a cat in my bed, and kept waking up due to the aftershocks - felt around 12.
There was over 20 during the night.

Chch has just reached the 50+ mark of the number of aftershocks. Neutral

Its great to see the community getting together though, all the nice stories of kindness to complete strangers etc, are coming through. chuu~!

Edit: well thats like two more aftershocks in the midst of posting this. I dont know what they are like for you guys; but once we hear the rumble we have 1-2 seconds before the earthquake hits... its like a reverse thunder storm... o_O

Can't believe how many times I woke up during the night because of aftershocks! Seriously wish the earth would get the hint "yes we know you can move everything, now you can stop for another 100 years".

Ah well... @Static/JP. Try ringing them on monday? (or send an email). Most places are re-opening monday~

Managed to sleep pretty ok last night, just tried to relax and watch as my bed magically moved across the floor. Still felt pretty frightening though.

Everyone else ok?

I managed to sleep through the night. I did wake up at 5:45, though, but I got back to sleep pretty soon afterwards.

As Twitter knows, I've made a fort under my desk in case of particularly violent aftershocks xDD
