I have lived on the west coast for nearly four years now and, despite the fact that there have been reports of a few incidents in the last few years, I have yet to feel the tremors of an earthquake. I have, however, written an article about one.
If you’ve done some sleuthing on this site, you may have already read this article, but since I know that most of you haven’t (unfortunately, the sad statistics are reported to me), I thought I’d dangle it in front of you like a carrot. So here you go… maybe you’ll learn something.
When John and Dianne Liefso of Virden, Manitoba, booked their vacation to New Zealand, the last thing they expected was to find themselves sitting in a booth in a pizza joint in Christchurch, holding on to a table for dear life amidst the roar and rumble of an earthquake. Expected or not, that’s exactly where they ended up.
