Posted by te2ataria on November 15, 2016
The cost of Kaikoura Earthquake is expected to top 2 billion dollars
Up to a hundred thousand landslides, including numerous dams, are thought to have formed as a result of earthquake.
Powerful aftershocks continue to plague the disaster areas.
A similar size quake striking Central Auckland could kill at least 100,000 people and inflict $300 billion in damage to property and infrastructure.

Our advice to YOU and all intelligent people in Wellington area
1. There’s a frighteningly large buildup of tectonic stress energy right under your feet.
2. RUN while you’re still alive, before the next exodus bottleneck makes it impossible to flee the danger zone.

A Warning to Visitors to New Zealand:
Climatological and Geological Warning! The New Zealand region is about to experience significant climatological events and large-scale geological and tectonic activity over an extensive period of time. Would be visitors are advised to stay out of the area for the foreseeable future.
Will a magnitude 9.8 (MW) earthquake centered at 42° 00′ 59″ [42.016389°] South, 175° 05′ 07″[175.085278°] East herald the end of New Zealand Islands?
Sunday’s massive quake occurred at 42.757°S, 173.077°E, or about 184km away. Watch this space!
Large-scale tectonic and geophysical activities could wipe off Christchurch and other NZ cities from the face of the Earth
