Outdoor Wednesday: Earthquake in Christchurch.
I came home to news that there is a serious earthquake in Christchurch. It is 6.3 earthquake, is shallower and nearer the centre of the city. The icon of Christchurch which survived the September was not so fortunate this time. The spire on the Christchurch Cathedral has collapsed.
There are reports of deaths. Around 150 people are trapped inside the 13-storey Forsyth Barr building on the corner of Armargh and Colombo streets.
I was in this photo with my sis in law in 1978. I don't think it will be salvaged. More than one hundred and ten years of history is gone.
