I had the chance to take a few photos of damage in central Wellington today after the 6.5 magnitude quake that struck at 5.09 pm on 21 July.
And Civic Assurance House, on The Terrace, had a massive crack down one side.
St Andrews On The Terrace was closed because of doubts about the building site next door – which also led to nearby Bolton Street being closed off to pedestrians.
The New Zealand Geological and Nuclear Sciences department can’t rule out more quakes of the same size. Or that they might tension the main Wellington fault – likely to cause the ‘big one’.
We’ll see. Fingers crossed.
