    Is that right, the damage looks a lot worse this time, maybe just selective images from news agencies makes it seem that way. Timing wasn't good that's for sure.

    It's a lot worse because it was much shallower. Only 5km's under ground which is why things are worse

    6.3 was this one, 7.1 in September. as i said the magnitude was lower now.

    and Dan is correct that this was shallower, and centred closer to Cch also.

    Im ok people, my work and home are a different story though. Not all family accounted for so a pretty touch time

    I came bloody close, where the trolley I was using was, 2 pallets came down on top of it. We were stranded at work, right near the epicentre, and liquification and flooding had us stuck there

    Can tell you 1st hand this is far worse that the 7.1, some of the stuff I have seen heading home is insane, a house with its roof sitting beside it.

    No power yet so have to preserve the laptop battery guys but I am all good, thanx for the concern
