On February 22nd I was out of bed early to have a shower and check my email and answer one back to my brother in England. After I had done that I had a bit of brekky and decided to go to Pak n Save. Just as I was going from my house into the garage I felt a big shake and after experiencing the first one I knew that we were going to be in for another earthquake. I slammed the door closed and went back into my living room and felt the whole house shaking. It was scary. When the house stopped shaking I looked out of the windows to see if there was any damage in the area and saw all the liquifaction spewing up out of the ground. Then when I tried to get out of my house all the doors were jammed because of the ceiling coming down and blocking the doors. As I was trying to get out I saw two girls running after their dog so I banged on the window loudly and called out for help, to get me out! The girls forgot about the dog and came up my drive and forced a door open to enable me to get out. They said before the roads get flooded we are all meeting on the corner. I went down to the corner and stopped there on a wall waiting for other neighbours to come, but because the roads were flooded only one made it. After a while sitting there with just one lady I decided nobody else was coming so I went back home. No power, water or sewerage. Not an experience I would like to go through again.
