Still thinking of you guys.
Just saw a pretty scary set of photos HERE
What was all the mud and slime that appeared everywhere? It looks like it came up from the ground.
The land was shaken so much so quickly that it liquified, making this gray silty crap that just came up absolutely everywhere! There is a huge amount down the side of our house that has obviously come from under the house. It has turned to liquid, the weight of the house dropped and squirted all the liquid earth out down the side, and built right up, was sooo freaky at the time, all this gray stuff and water everywhere
I am still a complete wreck here, however we did get a green sticker today meaning we can at least live in our house ... for now.
There was a very hard sudden sharp after shock at 7:49 this morning that has set a lot of things back. Buildings in town that had been assessed and cleared suffered a lot more damage and need to be assessed again, they were hoping to ease cordons in the city tomorrow but will remain totally our of bounds for another week now. Lots of repairs were damaged etc
It was only last Saturday but feels a lifetime ago here
