I just saw a post by Ocker1 that they've had another series of quakes in Christ Church N. Z.
He's OK, but those people have been through a lot.

I'm in my seventh decade on Earth. I know things.

A 6.6 magnitude earthquake has struck 20km south-east of Hanmer Springs, Geonet says.

It described the quake, felt through much of the country, as "very large".

The quake struck at 12.02am Monday and is officially rated as "severe".

Many people from as far afield as Wellington to Dunedin felt the quake.

In Wellington, sirens can be heard and people are on the street crying.

Almost 400 aftershocks have been recorded, including four over magnitude six. Scientists have said they could last several months.

The most recent, at 11.30am [Australian eastern time], registered as a “severe” 6.3 magnitude aftershock.

Officials from Geonet, the domestic natural hazards agency, have said one thing can be said “with certainty” — there will be more earthquakes to come in the affected area.
