New Zealand Earthquake

CHRISTCHURCH is still shaking 48 hours after an earthquake rocked the Cathederal cities very foundations.

Bad weather comes as at least 500 buildings, including 90 properties in the central business district, have been designated as destroyed following the 

7.1-magnitude quake.

More than 20 aftershocks yesterday threatened to cause more buildings to collapse, but as of last night there were no deaths.

In fact, the opposite was true. A record number of babies were born since Saturday’s 7.1 magnitude quake.

    The fact that no one was killed is a testiment to the strength of New Zealand’s building code. I hadn’t heard about the babies. Incredible!
