The goverment were really quick to respond though, I dont think theres anything they did wrong.
At the moment I hear one of the the biggest problems is no one can sleep with all the aftershocks so people are on short fuses and trying to sort out huge problems there at the same time, the stress must be getting to some people.
That plus the breweries were hit and theres a shortage of beer for all those hard workers :/
Do you live in Christchurch? Yeah that's really lucky.
Heard that everything's back to normal, but people are warned of stronger aftershocks.
