oh no!

My boyfriend had barely just arrived in Christchurch (NZ) and was in bed catching up with sleep after only 20 minutes sleep throughout the 29 hours of flying when he was woken up by the strong tremor of a 7.4 earthquake! I didn't realise how bad it was out there until I saw the news this morning ... the epicentre being 4km from where him & his friends were! Thankfully he rang last night saying he's ok - otherwise I'd be worried sick!

This is the seismograph - lots of after-quakes after the main one!! I've only experienced minor quake whilst in Japan, nothing fell off the shelves but it was scary enough shaking from side to side! I can't imagine what this must have been like!! I hope everyone out there is okay <3

Have you ever experienced an earthquake? If so, can you give any advise on how best to deal with the aftereffect?
