Wake up call
What have we learned from the Canterbury quake? The seismologists tell us there's a 60% chance of another magnitude 7 quake somewhere in the country within 10 years and a one in 10 chance of it happening within a year.

Scary! It's a wake up call, because if we don't invest in earthquake proofing our old buildings, then people, are going to die next time - either fix them or pull them down is the advice.

Is it scaremongering or is it a timely warming? SUNDAY's Ian Sinclair is on the ground in Christchurch and has been peering into the future.
