Wellington earthquake and consequences
We have recently heard from Wellington's disaster planners regarding the possibility that a major earthquake will fracture the region so severely it effectively splits into seven "islands".
The fear is that a rupture of magnitude 7.5 or greater along the Wellington Fault will damage road and water links in the capital so badly that its northern and western suburbs are cut off from its central, eastern and southern suburbs. They could remain cut off by road for up to 10 weeks. Click Here
