Tuesday, 14 August 2012 8:50 p.m. by Swiggs Popular

Today a massive milestone has been reached. 4,000 hours! At 2pm I ticked over my 4,000th hour actively working on this website, the foundation, the community networking and everything else earthquake recovery related since September 10th 2010 when I started this. All of this is volunteered time and I am looking very much forward to the next few years of continued hard work and results.

Implosion of Radio Network Building in Christchurch

Sunday, 5 August 2012 6:12 p.m. by ChChEarthquakeNews Popular

The building was 14 storeys high and many of the buildings surrounding it had already been demolished. It was built in 1986 but  damage from the February 2011 earthquake meant it could not be saved.

The fall was spectacular and neat and even in the late afternoon, people were milling around, photographing the remains of yet another Christchurch building.
