rockin’ and a rollin’

Christchurch endured an overwhelming sensation of deja vu earlier today, after a major earthquake rocked the capital’s core.

The quake, measured at 5.8 on the Richter scale, had the town on high alert and panic, with more than 60 people injured. 

Buildings such as the Christchuch Cathedral, suffered even more damage after the February quakes, which killed 182 people.

Following the initial quake, two more rocked the capital, measuring between 4.2 and 5.3, leaving residents to clean up the overwhelming state of liquefaction in the suburbia. 

The quakes come two days before Christmas.
