This was in the newspaper here (The Press) and shows the estuary straight after the earthquake. It looks as though there a lot of mini volcanoes. These were bubbling up during the earthquake which is what caused the sulphur smell we had.
This picture also appeared in the paper. As I said in an earlier post it has always been said that there is no major fault line over on this side of the alps.
The earthquake was centred around Darfield. A farmer from there went out and wrote in his field - right by a new fault line.
