Parts of the northern part of Stanmore Rd in Richmond is closed due to major damage to shops in Richmond Village. Parts of the brick wall above Henry Africas has collapsed and the buildings are not able to be entered. Parts of the shops opposite have also been condemned. The front fascade of Richmond Garage on Petrie St around the corner has also fallen down and looks too dangerous to enter. Extensive cracks in the roads in Richmond north of North Avon Rd.
Brick building (Henry Africa’s) at north end of Stanmore Rd damaged, lost side wall. Richmond garage frontage (Petrie Street) partly fallen off. Lots of chimneys down or dodgy, many cracks in road, and water mains burst – ‘sand volcanoes’ in driveways etc.
