Christchurch Earthquake and ‘Somali Pirates’

Posted by feww on February 27, 2011

At Risk: Hundreds of Millions of Aid Dollars

‘SOMALI PIRATES’ EYING ‘BOAT’ CARRYING INTERNATIONAL DONATIONS FOR CHRISTCHURCH QUAKE VICTIMS

“The devastation in Christchurch is as bad as the destruction caused by an earthquake in Haiti last year, former New Zealand Prime Minister Helen Clark says.”

A former NZ PM and a current prominent UN figure, Ms Clark must surely be even more initiated than the UN secretary general Mr Banki – Moon!

Ms Clark who now heads the United Nations development program, reportedly flew into Christchurch today and visited the central city to view the CTV and PGC building sites.

“Total devastation, and my heart goes out to everybody. So many people no longer with us. Grieving families. People with terrible injuries. People’s livelihoods destroyed … that’s the devastating scene.” She said.

“The devastation in Christchurch is as bad as the destruction caused by an earthquake in Haiti last year, former New Zealand Prime Minister Helen Clark says.” Local media reported.

Interesting how the establishment agents have such short memories. After the Christchurch earthquake 2010, they said the buildings there were much more quake-resistant than Haiti’s, in an attempt to explain why no one was killed in NZ. [The international charity mafia still claims that more than 300,000 people were killed—sic—and about 316,000 injured—sic— as a result of the Haiti 2010 quake.]

Keep an eye on the donation figures and see how the hundreds of millions of dollars poured in would be hijacked by the ‘Somali Pirates.’ At least they might now moralize the grand larceny by using excuses like: ‘Why rebuild in the same place where nature has destroyed twice already.’

[SEISMIC HAZARD WARNING: Areas in and around the Golden Bay, the Tasman Bay, the region north and south of the Cook Strait, the entire northern seaboard of North Island, especially the  Hauraki Gulf area, as well as the western and eastern seaboards of the NI are believed to be among NZ’s potential disaster hotpots.

Earthquake Update Feb 27, 2011

The Mass Exodus

“Authorities in Nelson are working hard to accommodate fleeing Christchurch residents amid reports that [thousands] have escaped to the region following Tuesday’s earthquake.” Source

“It is difficult to gauge the number of arrivals, however, anecdotal estimates have people arriving from Christchurch over the weekend numbering many hundreds,” spokesman for Tasman Emergency Management said.

“There had been reports that some were looking to shift to the Nelson-Tasman area long term, with some enrolling in schools.” The report said.

The Amazing Vanishing Act of the Dead

Previously:

  • Fatalities : 145 Dead (at least 95 percent had already been identified)
  • Missing: Between 200 to 300
  • Presumed total of the dead and missing: Between 345 and 445.

Today:

Superintendent Dave Cliff confirmed the death toll in Christchurch had increased to 147.

He said there are still more than 200 people missing, including a New Zealand police officer.

“We know many – if not all – of the confirmed dead will be on that list,” Mr Cliff said this evening.

“So there are still over 50 unaccounted for.” Source

NZ PM John Key’s Revealing Comment about the Fatalities:

“This may be New Zealand’s single-most tragic event,” he said (See below).

[NOTE: In New Zealand’s previous worst ever disaster, the 1931 Hawkes Bay earthquake, 256 people perished.]

FIRE-EARTH Quake Warnings:

FIRE-EARTH Blog has been posting specific quake warning for New Zealand Region since 2008, all of which have been buried by New Zealand govt and Google. [See links below.]

The following report written by the Press Association is included for reference:

New Zealand disaster ‘worst ever’

[UKPA] Saturday February 26 2011

New Zealand’s prime minister said the Christchurch quake may be the country’s worst disaster ever, as officials warned that a third of the city centre’s buildings may have to be destroyed.

Engineers and planners said the city’s decimated central area may be completely unusable for months to come and that at least a third of the buildings must be demolished and rebuilt after last Tuesday’s 6.3-magnitude quake. The casualty toll stands at 145 dead and more than 200 missing.

John Key said the government would announce an aid package on Monday for an estimated 50,000 people who will be out of work for months due to the closure of the city centre. Mr Key, who spent some time talking to families who lost loved ones in the disaster, called for two minutes of silence next Tuesday to remember both the victims and the ordeal of the survivors.

“This may be New Zealand’s single-most tragic event,” he said.

Christchurch mayor Bob Parker assured relatives of the missing – including people from several countries who have converged on this southern New Zealand city of 350,000 – that every effort was being made to locate any remaining survivors of Tuesday’s 6.3-magnitude quake.

No-one was found alive overnight as a multi-national team of more than 600 rescuers continued scouring the city’s central business district, although a paramedic reported hearing voices in one destroyed building early on Saturday, Police Supt Russel Gibson said.

Police have said up to 120 bodies may be entombed in the ruins of the CTV building alone, where dozens of foreign students from an international school were believed to be trapped. Still, Supt Gibson said rescuers were not completely ruling out good news. “I talked to experts who say we’ve worked on buildings like this overseas and we get miracles. New Zealand deserves a few miracles,” he said.

The King’s Education language school released a list of missing people presumed in the building: nine teachers and 51 students – 26 Japanese, 14 Chinese, six Filipinos, three Thais, one South Korean and one Czech. An additional 20 students were listed with “status unknown”.

The death toll rose on Saturday to 145, Police Supt David Cliff said, adding that: “We do expect that number to rise.” Some 226 people remained missing. At Christchurch’s cathedral, workers had just begun work on its ruined bell tower late on Friday when fresh aftershocks sent more masonry tumbling from the building.

The city’s central business district will take several months to recover, Earthquake Recovery Minister Gerry Brownlee said, adding that “most of the services, in fact all of the services that are offered in the CBD will need to relocate elsewhere”.

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.

Christchurch Could Vanish from Google Map

Posted by feww on February 23, 2011

SPECIFIC  WARNING to New Zealand

Large-scale tectonic and geophysical  activities could wipe off Christchurch and other NZ cities from the face of the Earth

In  A Warning to Visitors to New Zealand FIRE-EARTH asked Apartheid Fort New Zealand to post the following message dated May 9, 2009:

[NOTE: The posts linked to above have also been buried by NZ govt and the Internet mafia.]

Climatological and Geological Warning!

The New Zealand region is about to experience significant climatological events and large-scale geological and tectonic activity. Would be visitors are advised to stay out of the area for the foreseeable future.

On July 16, 2009 FIRE-EARTH posted Global Travel Warning!

Global Travel Warning!

Posted by feww on July 16, 2009

STAY OUT OF NEW ZEALAND!

The following WARNING was first posted on MAY 9, 2009 at NewZeelend Blog. FEWW is re-posting the WARNING with renewed urgency:

Seismic, Volcanic and Climatological Warning!

The New Zealand region is undergoing large-scale tectonic [seismological and volcanic] activities and significant climatological events. Would be visitors are well advised to stay clear of the area for the foreseeable future.

Here’s a New, SPECIFIC WARNING to New Zealand

FIRE-EARTH believes large earthquakes could destroy Christchurch and several other cities in New Zealand. The bulk of Christchurch could literally vanish as a result of ensuing geophysical activity, possibly by as early as 2015.

In the Short Term

  • More powerful shocks could strike Christchurch [also Auckland, Wellington and elsewhere in New Zealand] anytime.
  • Large scale volcanic activity in the country could occur this year [high probability.]
  • FIRE-EARTH has identified a number of potential seismic ‘Ground Zeros,’ areas prone to devastation, in the New Zealand Region, some of which coincide with population centers.

New Zealand government has a moral responsibility [we won’t hold our breath] and a  legal duty to relocate New Zealanders from the DANGER ZONES. [Would you trust a government which hides earthquake warnings from its people?]

FIRE-EARTH advice to Christchurch residents:

Get out while you’re still alive!
