Kia Ora Bro, thanks for your message, great to hear from you. The story so far:

Christchurch is still having after shocks, in total over six thousand since the quake hit in February, can you beleive that 6,000. There is nothing more to shake down, most of the buildings in the CBD have nothing left to give. Its now demolition teams who are now in the CBD. ITs what is been refer as the red zone (heart of the city)is still inlock down mode, unless you have the right paper work and pass, you wont get through the cordon. Its basicly a ghost town with over 900 buildings to be pulled down in the CBD - red zone. Thats a lot of buildings and dont expect the public back in there until next year at the earliest. The big question for the recovery and rebuilding, where do you start. NZ doesnot have the skill base or capacity to have this massive job completed by the end of this year but rather its about being patient and wait and see. The projection is that it will take anything between 12 to 15 years to have the city back up and running, with buldings that will be able to with stand the quakes that shattered a lot of the buildings in the CBD. Most if not all the buildings that collapsed were built in the last century of brink and mortar - in short most of the heritage buildings are now gone.................. there will be big gaps in the city landscape. I was very humble to have worked along side USAR boys and girls from all over the world, including a team from states CA-TF2. I spent six weeks in the red zone from searching to recovery. I have been back at work, three weeks today, and on that note, its midnight my time, and I off to bed, as always bro be safe out there. If ur thinking of coming down this way, there is always a bunk here for ya....
