"fraid the repairs are real slow, thousands of houses still not fixed ! or even bin decided whats gunna happen whether they are write offs ( by insurance cos ) or the land has bin RED ZONED ( never to be built on again) By Government !, SO people are in limbo, fighting with the GOV EQC , and their hurriedly formed CERRA a rebuild committee, run by incompetents, and buffoons
Then theres the insurance Co's that say they will only pay out for repairs , but most houses are on this land that bin condemned and RED ZONED by GOVERNMENT
This will be the 4th winter that people are going to try and survive in a house with only flimsy building paper as cladding for their walls , an no sewerage, having to use "Long Drops " as outside dunnies
Water and liquifaction bubbling up acropss their land,and under their floors, creating "Damp Death and Black Mould on walls ceilings and bedding etc , SHE'S REAL BAD !!

AND, lots of them have bin told not to expect much happening till at least 2016 !!

I reckon its gunna get as bad as New Orleans !! Corruption ,and under table dealing is rife , consultants getting thousands of $ A DAY to sit on committies, not knowing a fucking thing about what supposed to be going on , Its Jobs for the boys

Dang Ocker, I'm saddened to hear it's been so ruff for folks and takin' so long for the infrastructure to get pieced back together again.

Have many folks relocated out of CC? Is there talk of building elsewhere?

If there is still a lot of geologic turmoil, I can kinda understand why things are at a standstill ~ but the money issues should have been cleared up long ago. Between the Insurance companies and the gov they should be able to get folks decent housing and made somewhere close to whole, at least financially.

If you have links on stories about the conditions in CC ~ or photo essays, etc. please share them, Bro. The CC disaster slipped off the radar but that doesn't mean folks don't care about Kiwis.

Yer doin' a fine thing contributing your artwork as a visual history of better times, M8. Keep up the great work! beercheer.gif
