Living in a Maelstrom (47 pics)

Looking at these photos of New Zealand after Saturday’s earthquake, I get chills down my spine. It must be horrible to live in Christchurch where people got approximately 300 temblors in just 5 days. Almost 100,000 houses were damaged. It’s a miracle that no one has been reported dead as the earthquake magnitude was 7.1. Local authorities announced a state of civil emergency for the next week.

New Zealand is located in the area where 2 tectonic plates collide. Every year the country faces more than 10,000 earthquakes, but only less than 10 leave such damage.

Here's another good site to get perspective on Christchurch's earthquake: http://www.christchurchquakemap.co.nz/

To put this in perspective: these pictures are the more dramatic ones. Many parts of the city have only minor damage.
