Not comforting

From Saturday's Christchurch Press.

The light green box is my guess about where our house is relative to the three main fault lines. I love that there's a new one that seems to run North-South down Pine street, next block over from us.

The Press reports the chances of another 6.0-7.9 quake run 23%; 94% chance of a 5.0-6.


  1. A 7.9 doesn't sound like a whole lot of fun.

  2. Yeah. And which fault had released the least pressure so far? Looks like the one running down Pine Street.

    No way I'm letting the gas tank drop below half for a while...

  3. Shame that Akaroa is a little too far to commute to Ilam -- one of the most beautiful spots on Earth, and no evidence of seismic activity yet as far as I'm aware.
