Christchurch Earthquake

At 4.35am on Saturday, September 4th 2010, Christchurch, New Zealand was struck by a 7.1 magnitude earthquake which damaged buildings and injured people but thankfully, no one was killed.

At 12.50pm on Tuesday, February 22nd, a 6.3 magnitude earthquake in Christchurch shattered what was left of the broken city and has so far killed 76 people, with over 300 people still missing. It has caused complete chaos, with collapsed buildings, roads torn apart, burst pipes pouring sewage through the streets, people missing and homes destroyed.

It has been labeled New Zealand’s worst natural disaster and the whole country is in a state of emergency. We are all lending a hand, with food, money, fire fighters, civil defence personnel, nurses and prayers.
