Thread: Earthquake

  1. #1

    Default Earthquake

    Some of you may be awear that in Christchurch two days ago there was a 6.3 earthquake, while not as big as recent quakes it has caused a huge amount of loss for the people mainly on the eastern side of the city and the central city I last heard the death toll was 98 and expected to rise much higher with some 300 people knowen to be missing.

    All of my friends and family are well and safe, we were very luckey, I had the day off work and was at home with my wife and kids when it happened. As I work for the power company I am also fortunatly still employed and work will pickup a bit........

    We are all very greatful the the USAR teams that have come from around the world to help!

    Been following news reports on it. Sounds like a bad one as far as damage.

    Many people here in the US (not sure if it's common elsewhere) don't realize most homeowner's insurance policies do NOT cover earthquake damage as normally written. I added earthquake coverage a few years ago for a very low increase to my premium. Hope I never need it, but it seems like earthquakes are becoming more frequent.

    The film we're seeing here is devastating to say the least. But what we're also seeing is People with Moxie: Get up, dust yourself off, and lets clean up this mess.

    Quite a different mind set from what you see elsewhere.

    We were thinking about you, and are very glad that you and your family are safe.
    We have seen some sad pictures from Christchurch here in the US. Hoping for the best.

    Glad you are ok. Hope things get back to normal as soon as possible. It sounds like some important buildings came down though. A shame.
