Shaky christchurch

We are still feeling tremors of afthershocks after two earth quakes today. The first one, a 5.8, caught us in the jam packed mall of Riccaton. People's nerves are raw and there were lots of people screaming and crying. We walked out of the mall while others pushed and ran. I don't blame them, the entire building shook, the ceiling swayed and the earth rumbled ever so loudly.
The second quake, a larger prolonged 6.0, happened while we were back at Aarons house. Everyone stood still and I stood underneath the kitchen door frame.
We are told that there will be more quakes this holiday but for now, its eggnog night.
