So..this is the street next to mine, in Christchurch NZ. A 6.3 earthquake did this to the road yesterday afternoon. We lost power but got it switched back on a midnight, but still have no water. Ah the joys of Mother Nature.
RESCUED: Office workers were lowered on ropes to escape the Forsyth Barr building when the stairs failed in the February quake. The Forsyth Barr building's owners have not yet made a decision to demolish or repair the high rise across from Victoria Square.
