Just a few heartbreaking images from the aftermath of the 6.3 magnitude earthquake on that hit on Tuesday 22nd February. Although it was smaller on the Richter scale than than the 7.1 that hit in September 2010, it was so shallow (5kms deep) that it caused ALOT more damage, and unlike the last quake, this one has taken lives. Amazingly, my beloved husband, all my fur babies and my friends and family are safe and uninjured, and I am very thankful for that. There are many people out there who aren't as lucky, and my thoughts are with them. The Christchurch Cathedral before and after the quake. 20 bodies have been found here.

The two above images are of the Grand Chancellor Hotel which is situated right in the CBD. It is currently sinking on it's foundations and will either collapse on it's own or will have to be pulled down. It is one of the tallest buildings in Christchurch.
