I certainly couldn't afford our house with it's views in the UK (it's better now that it has been rebuilt ).
Will Christchurch have another major earthquake, hopefully not in my life time but who knows.
Am I concerned about earthquakes living in Christchurch, nope but I would be if I lived in Wellington.
Majority of Christchurch buildings have either been strengthened or rebuilt now to new design codes.
Hi JJG, thank you for sharing your experience in Christchurch. The last sentence makes sense and is rather reassuring!
