We had eruption and earthquake drills. Eruption drills involved loading the whole school onto buses.
Growing up we used to say every minor quake (less than 5.5) was a good thing, it releases pent up pressure on the plates. I have no idea if that's true.

My FIL is from Chile and he has lived through several big devastating earth quakes, he knows the pain I do and he knows what I am feeling when I am standing in front of the tv bawling my eyes out every time another one hits.... He gets it and he is the one that comforted me when I couldn't get hold of my family, my DH was supportive and did what he could but he just didn't get it like his dad did.
I do recommend watching he movie if you can. In happy to burn the DVD and send to you if you want?

We had Eruption, Earthquake and Tsunami ones living in the naki..
We missed this last night, but i remember when my boss came in to tell me and i panicked (SP?) not being able to get hold of my cousin who i'm really close to, she finally text everyone to say they were all ok but scared. Their 10yo just says now it's ok it's only an earthquake which breaks my heart everytime i hear him say it. They were thinking of moving to brisbane but can't sell their house. The last big one i phoned her and she said we are all ok, but i have no wine glasses left except for the one i'm drinking out of and only half a bottle of wine...
Dh's Aunty lives there too and she has been told she will have a porta loo for at least the next two years.
Mum's friends sister was one of the ladies in the TV studio building (can't remember the name) who passed away, it broke my heart them not knowing any information for so long.
We had a 5. something one here in kal a couple of years ago and a lot of the buildings damaged in that are being demolished it's so sad to see the history disappearing.
Siege - Where do you get the DVD from??

I am going to watch this again today as I do not think I really took it all in,was so devastating seeing the places you were at everyday smashed into a million peices
I still have family and friends there.My Mum is never alone in her house,she waits outside for her husband to get home,so nothing can fall on her.Wherever she goes,she looks up to see what can fall on her,or where the exit is.She hates going to the supermarket,and does it as quickly as she can because of all the stock sitting up so high on shelves. It breaks my heart that this is the way everyone lives now

I had a lot of friends pack up and get out of the city for a few weeks/months just for their own sanity but they all had to go home at some stage.
At least the majority of aftershocks are few and far between now and mostly at night so they aren't felt and aren't upsetting but there would still be that linger of doubt it the back of your mind wondering when it was going to happen again 😔
