Three Months Post-Earthquake

Resuming normal service has taken longer than expected [see News 8 Sep. 2010], but not all due to the earthquake. Aftershocks magnitude M3.0 or greater are still occurring three months after the 4 September M7.1 earthquake – seven in the last week centred SW of Christchurch, up to M3.8. Comment on earthquake effects on water will follow in the New Year.
