– Blakes Road, Prebbleton, Canterbury, New Zealand

Sept 4 2010 I was 8 months pregnant and had just gotten back into bed after one of my many nocturnal trips to the bathroom, the first part of the shake got me back out of bed and into the doorway, and then I heard it coming. It was as if a 747 was running up its engines right outside, the noise was phenomenal!

Feb 22nd was a decent shake out here but nothing like Sept 4th, it gradually dawned on us as we watched the pictures coming in on the TV that people had lost their lives.
