Good to hear you didn't get any damage, must have been quite a shaking you guys had up there judging by what we got down here.

The kitchen was a bit of a state but we only lost a few plates and cups, nothing important.
Took us until about 2am to finish cleaning and clearing stuff, I didn't want to wait until the morning to do any of that.

It was crazy shaky although we seemed to get off lightly compared to others from the news report, it showed me what I need to earthquake proof for the future. First thing I did was secure and tether my 50inch baby so it won't topple over.

Seeing cracks in my road is a bit worrying though, guess I should try and fill those in right?

Those tv straps can be a real lifesaver :thumbup:

Are the cracks in the road on your property on the city's land and what is it made of ?

I believe the road leading up to our place until the front of the garage is city owned. Not sure about the one leading to the actual house though.

The road looks like it's made from small rocks, not the type of stuff you see on the main roads.

If it belongs to the city then you don't need to do anything but it could take a very long time till they get around to it. You can buy sacks of ready mix asphalt in some larger home centres, we made a repair after the big one of 2011. You heat it up over an open fire and pour it into places you want to fill and bash it down with a lump hammer.

I thought it would be something like that, we're not exactly a main road so I wouldn't know if they would actually bother to even repair it or not.
I have got some part that seems to be sagging on the edges. even after laying some loose stones there to even it out it's gone back to sinking slightly. Fuck it, I'll ask the landlord to see if he can contact the city about repairing it.
