Christchurch, NZ: A City in Ruins

Yesterday, the 22nd of February 2011, a large 6.3 magnitude earthquake hit Christchurch, New Zealand. Christchurch is the second largest city in New Zealand. The buildings and streets of Christchurch had the feel of a lovely, picturesque 'Kiwi' country town, much of which has been destroyed by the recent earthquake. The streets are frighteningly different today, seen in the ruins of what is left of many of the once beautiful buildings of Christchurch.
