yea avonhead is okay as far as ive seen this morning, got woken up at 4:35 by the shaking and sound of things falling but couldnt see nothing only realising that the power was out cos the night lamp wouldnt turn on >< groped around in the dark for robe and jacket cos it was freaking cold, luckily my bro just got bac from his night shift at the casino (he later wondered about the fate of his other workmates who where still there and some big chandeliers??) anyways he apparently just got home, had a shower and heated some food up when it hit. so he barges into my room with his night vision goggles (limited gifts from a game he got lol) cos he cudnt find his flashlights- got me to help him light up his vintage oil lamp (lol) and then helped my caged incense oil burner (can take the lid bowl off cos not putting any oil on to burn) lit. and while i grabbed a water bottle and my handbag that just like had everything (keys, cellphone, etc) in it i heard him yelling in my mum's room to wake her up cos she apparently was ready to go bac to sleep when he went in O.o um told them to switch off main power supply just to be safe and we all went out to the end of the drive way where no falling trees or pole cud get us >< but i must say it was one of the most un-nerving experience becos it was like pitch black, freezing cold, car siren going off somewhere in the background, and only saw neighbours by floating lights in the darkness D=

us and neighbours checked around and txted around for half an hour, then got mum to back the car down to the spot and we sat there until her friend in the area txted her to go pick her up cos she had locked herself out <.<
were told by some lady's son's txt saying to go fill out every bottle/tub cos water was being cut in 2hrs by the maintain ppl company think that was around 6/ 6:30ish ...(dont think it ever did happen tho)
anyways some of my mum's hanging/ not hanging pot plants suffered, and most of our wine glasses died and i got nipped on a pinky when cleaning them up, and found out power is bac =) but no signal on cellphone or sky etc, mum went to check out the local temple and brother really needed some sleep, i havnt slept since cos im too nervous about all the aftershocks @_@ kinda watching over for now

I only just got power back! Still no news about water though. sad We have a different water system at our house where the water is only heated as we use it. (It gets super-heated as it comes through the tap to whatever tempurature we have it set to). This means we don't have any water and I had to rinse my teeth after brushing them with Mountain Dew and Listerine haha... xD Both my cats are fine which is good, one was missing this morning, and we have a few broken bits and bobs around the house, and our garden is all torn up, other than that we are well and safe! :) I have a few pictures that I'm uploading. Some of the links might not work yet but they will all be up soon.

This is of Kaiapoi btw :) (where I live D;; )

I woke up at 11:30ish and checked my phone.

Text, at 4:35ish from Lavi saying something about an earthquake waking him up.
Text, 5amish from Lavi saying that the power was out.
Text, 10:30amish from Azeria saying Lavi was okay and that his power was back.

And my reaction was "... What's the big deal?" And THEN I checked stuff. Did NOT expect that OTL. If I hadn't received those texts I prolly would have been panicking OTL

But it's great news that no one has died, and only like, three people have had server injuries (including the guy with the cardiac arrest).

Good to hear from you all!

Some parts of the road is damaged in our area, and our park doesn't look flat anymore its a bit up/downy.

Some of these aftershocks are terrible, the one we had a minute ago has caused my cat to run under the bed and refuse to come out. Its really hard judging how big they might get as they begin... especially if you hear the loud rumbling sound first :/
that and the sound of cracking like noises from the ceiling >_>

Geonets has us up to about 18 aftershocks since the first, all being 3-5 scale - though I think we've had three more since it last updated. Actually make that four *another aftershock*

GAH.

Hope everyones ok. Parklands has full running water, internet, cellphones & power so hoping you guys are ok.

Btw just a precaution, there may be a rebound earthquake within 12-24 hours (not aftershocks).

If anyone needs assistance near Parklands then feel free to contact me and I will do my best to assist you if emergency services are not an option for you.

oh god. the elderly people on the news have struck a particular chord with me-like my grandparents down there, the elderly have worked all their lives for a comfortable retirement, and the destruction this has caused must be devastating

Ok, so it's times like these that I curse living RIGHT IN THE CENTRE OF TOWN but thank god that our building is made of concrete blocks and was not damaged AT ALL. I'm perfectly fine though I'm hearing we might be evacuated this arvo some point, due to use living in town. We have power, running water and electricity, so I'm set. 8D

The overdue earthquake is going to rip the South Island apart, I'm afraid to say. The West Coast is going to get shunted North several meters, and up a few feet, from what I've learned at school. Either that, or the West Coast will sink or something. I'm not entirely sure what. But be prepared for the worst when it does come, because it's going to absolutely change the South Island. =/
I'm just so glad that it wasn't here today.
The more smaller earthquakes we have, the more steam is bled off on the big one. I hope for more and more of these littler ones. You can understand why, right? =/

Earthquakes are so terrifying. x.x I hate natural disasters. </3 </3 </3 Volcanoes scare me the most.
