City High Street Shop Closed after 22-Feb Earthquake.

An ordinary day for us at work. I was at Teasme Church Corner working as usual until it was time to go to City to take over Vivian’s  at 1pm. As I drove passed the round about from Riccarton entering the city an earthquake shook my car swing the tail like I was drifting. I tried to call both shops, but all cell and landlines were down. I What happens after is captured in this photo album. At the center of the city, almost all buildings on Columbo St were destroyed (fallen), trees blocked the roads, liquid and sand bursting from the ground. I met Vivian in front of the shop. People were scared, hurt and receiving CPR. After Vivian and I left the shop. We had to go around a few blocks to get back to the car. Here are some more photos. What happened at the City shop was too much for me to lift my camera to take photos. The shop is badly destroyed. Our Church Corner Branch is operating now.
