Christchurch Earthquake

I was born in Auckland, though most of New Zealand childhood that I remember was spent in Christchurch until I moved to Australia when I was ten.

The recent quakes experienced in Christchurch are changing the face of a city that I've only had the pleasure of visiting a few times since I left 25 or so years ago.

For outsiders to get a good idea of where the quake occurred, and the fear that a lot of Canterbury dwellers are experiencing with these aftershocks still happening, take a look at the Christchurch Quake Map.

I hear no hobbits were harmed during the quakes, though that's mostly because their homes are located in the North Island, and they're not real.
