More Quake

Top picture is a satellite image, from the Japanese Alos spacecraft via the BBC, of the earthquake in NZ.
Next is a road that we know we followed 11 months ago.
And here is a beautifully written piece by a person who was there. It conveys what I feared about quake-striken Christchurch and Lyttleton: now, it seems, there is no terra firma. Disorienting and terrifying. More than 10,000 homes, buildings, and historic structures cannot be rebuilt due to liquefaction, described as turning solid ground into toothpaste.
