  11. hi here is an indepth look at the quake on news and video i see the xperts have likened it to the haiti shake where thousands were killed we didnt lose a life here and i feel new zealanders are quake savvy and keep strictly to the rule we are taught there were lots of damage while im on the structural damagea houses built from ninetys on were the ones damaged and thing any built back in 80-70"s were not touched dosent that tell people of the building standards from then until now my home was built in the 80"s and other my wet pants no damage however here is an indepth news and video on the event forgot to mention that news and video was sent to me by bill mallanson bless him marty http://cosmiclog.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2010/09/03/5041063-why-the-nz-quake-is-no-haiti

  13. yo hitest yes lets say i may have peed my pants where i was born earthquakes are common but small this bugger wa 5 times as strong and worse was the after shocks a friend and i toured over the affected area all bridges in the area once an emmergency was raised were closed off to the public strangly enough there were some who tried to flaunt the rules but the army were on hand to stopped any one from getting hurt every year we have earthquake drill were we have do what is safe ffor us like when the quake started i made for the door and stayed on my lawn until i though ti was safe those after shakes are the frightening thing so i stayed close to my door it was bloody clod as we are comming off winter some residence went for tents and the sadining part there were children ok other parts of the world have it worse then us but when it happens to you you pee your pants sorry for wandering off but i needed to get it off my chest now i feel better marty
