A 3 metre displacement on a straight road as the result of a 7.1 magnitude earthquake on 4th September 2010

Hi Peter, it is blooming amazing how the centerline the road lines up almost perfectly with the left hand side line...

Nature trying to do its best?

That would be something like 7000 aftershocks ago, I understand. (nothing under m1.6...)

We had a 4.4 just after 6am today, with a few more smaller ones then another 4.4 at 2:40pm this afternoon. Seems like we are going for a record number of shakes.

Rats!! People here are getting heartly sick of the shaking everyday since Sept 4th last year. Where is the OFF switch?

Cheers Peter B also. Shakey City of Christchurch

Wow! Amazing! I saw something similar in San Francisco area, from the 1906 earthquake there. The 2010 & 2011 earthquakes were very bad in Christchurch... I hope things are better now! Best regards, André.
