The Challenge today is my thoughts about the Earthquake in the early hours on the 14 November 2016 North Canterbury in the South Island New Zealand.
After being woken up just after midnight by an earthquake 7.5 which lasted for 2 minutes on the 14 November 2016.
Before going back to sleep, I hoped no one was injured, as it was so powerful, thinking it was somewhere near Taranaki as we had had a strong earthquake the week before.
Courage and willpower will be needed by all the people involved, in places the mess is bad, which could take months before it is cleaned up.
Danger is still very real with the aftershocks, some of them very strong.
Everybody is still suffering from the memories of the Christchurch Earthquakes nearly six years ago.
Feelings for all those affected by this horror turn of events with mother nature.
Going to be an ongoing turn of, busy events for the civil defence.
High on my thoughts are the people stuck in Kaikoura, with the roads blocked by the damage from the earthquake.
I wonder what the outcome will be for all.
Just as I thought, more aftershocks some of the at 4.2
Kind of sad not being able to help all those stuck in the middle, the army is there helping now.
Like to think there will be a light at the end of the tunnel for everyone.
My thoughts are not enough, time to start sending love to all those poor people.
No power or sewage in some places piping has been completely broken.
Off to do some work and stop attaching the TV, updating the situation.
People are nowhere to be seen in Wellington, which has been hit badly by the earthquake also.
Quite a troubling time in New Zealand again.
Rockfall completely blocking roads.
Simply hard to believe that the South Island has been damaged again by earthquakes.
Trusting some people is hard, as looters have already been in an abandoned home and removed property.
Umbrellas needed in Taranaki it’s raining making the situation worse than it needs to feel.
Very cold it supposed to be nearly summer, those winds wish they would go.
Weather not feeling like summer holidays only four weeks away from school breakup for 2016.
XXX’s for everyone.
You can believe by what you have been reading here I’m very upset with mother nature.
Zig-Zagging along the broken roads where the earthquake has hit will not get you through to your destination.
