Valentine’s Day Quake: No Massacre!
Another unpleasant reminder of the deadly quake that devastated Christchurch in 2011
No death or injuries reported as a result of this quake, so far. However, the quake has caused considerable damage to dozens of buildings.
“A section of cliff at Godley Head collapsed into the sea with cliff collapses continuing for up to 30 minutes after the quake, creating loud booms and dust clouds,” according to a report.
Rocks and boulders were shaken from cliffs Takamatua, Akaroa. And a collapse on Richmond Hill cliff occurred just after the shaking had stopped.
