New Zealand eathquake

The events across the world have been discussed a lot in class this week and I feel that I really should blog a few links to store them here. The photos here are good examples of how people feel the impact of earthquakes and how the experts from all over the world including Britain are going to help. Here is a link to an article on this. As ever the BBC have produced some amazing photos to compare the "before" and "after" situation and I think the best is seen here. There is an interesting video in the Telegraph newspaper online here. and lots of eyewitness stories here including the bride who was pulled from the rubble 3 days before she got married! There is also an article here about how buildings which were supposed to be "quake-proof" had in fact collapsed. Don't think ours would have been much better made of spaghetti and marshmallows!
