Earthquake Details [USGS/EHP]

  • Magnitude: 6.5Mw
  • Depth:10.0km
  • Location: 41.767°S 174.061°E
  • Time: 2013-08-16 11:31:07 UTC+09:00

Buildings have been severely damaged in Seddon, which has been the center of seismic activity since an earlier M6.5 tremor struck the are on July 21, said a report.

The earthquake was felt strongly in NZ Parliament, said a political commentator.

“You could see the floor of the house wobbling and you could see all the fences around shaking and all the windows were shaking.” A Blenheim resident said.

“Its way bigger, hugely bigger, like with the other one because we had heaps of after shocks with the other one they were just not anything to kind of panic about.”

A Nelson resident told NewstalkZB she could hear the “violent” earthquake coming just before it struck.

“Last time it threw us around, the last earthquake, but you could hear this one coming. It was big, and really noisy.”

As if by a massive irony, your most populated cities are situated right above geological nightmares–a fact that your government scientists don’t know, or won’t tell you.

Our advice to YOU and all intelligent people in Wellington area
1. There’s a frighteningly large buildup of tectonic stress energy right under your feet.
2. RUN while you’re still alive, before the next exodus bottleneck makes it impossible to flee the danger zone.

A Warning to Visitors to New Zealand:

Climatological and Geological Warning! The New Zealand region is about to experience significant climatological events and large-scale geological and tectonic activity over an extensive period of time. Would be visitors are advised to stay out of the area for the foreseeable future.

Will a magnitude 9.8 (MW) earthquake centered at 42° 00′ 59″ South, 175° 05′ 07″ East herald the end of New Zealand Islands?

Christchurch Earthquake UPDATE Feb 26

Posted by feww on February 26, 2011

Secrecy, Police Control and Political Manipulation Continue in the Quake Aftermath

Confirmed death toll from the Christchurch earthquake has risen to 145, as of posting, with 200+ listed as missing, the Canterbury Region police chief has said.

  • Despite the mounting death toll, NZ police have only released the names of six victims.
  • Police refusal to release the list of those missing remains an even bigger mystery.

The Cathedral ‘God’ Despised

Other deatails:

  • There was no live rescue today, just recovery.
  • Rescue operations have been abandoned in several areas.
  • About 150,000 tons of sand, surfaced as a result of the liquefaction, will have to be removed from Christchurch’s eastern suburbs, reports say.  Only about a fifth of that amount (30,000 tons of sand) was removed after the September 4, 2010 earthquake, NZ’s civil defense has said.
  • More than a third of Christchurch workforce will be out of work for months/years because of the closure of downtown.
  • About 65,000 people remain without water
  • More than 100,000 have no sewerage service.
  • At least 1,000 homes and business have been assessed as “unsafe,” with many more rated as “requiring further assessment.”
  • About one-third of the buildings  in central Christchurch would have to be demolished, according to one estimate.
  • About 200 elderly residents from the worst-affected areas have been transferred out of Christchurch area.
  • At least a quarter of Christchurch buildings are still without power.
  • “More than 500 competitors from 30 different countries were taking part in the ITF World Seniors Championships in Christchurch when the quake hit the 6.3 magnitude quake hit on Tuesday.” Said a report.

Noteworthy Points for Collapse Scholars:

  • Racketeering. Many businesses in Christchurch are reportedly hiking up their prices to maximize profit in the wake of the fatal earthquake, Newstalk ZB said.
  • Food Security. at least 50,000 of Christchurch workforce will be out of work for months, possibly years because of the devastation caused by the earthquake.
  • The Police State. Some 324 police personnel have been imported from Australia and sworn to secrecy.
  • The Exodus. The rush to get out of Christchurch is accelerating, reports say. “Some of those leaving are going for good, even some who have nowhere else to go.” Said a report.  The exodus from Christchurch to Picton and Wellington has begun.
  • The Domino Effect. The city of Nelson, and towns of Blenheim and Picton (and others in the Marlborough region),  have reportedly run out of accommodation for the elderly, after many were relocated from Christchurch following Tuesday’s earthquake.
