On Wednesday evening, Anne Wein—native New Zealander and EERI social science team member—took Jeannette and I on a bit of a driving tour of some of the affected suburbs surrounding Christchurch. We of course could not access some of the most badly damaged areas, but the impacts we observed were sobering. Below are some of the photos I took that are simply meant to serve as reminders of the social disruption caused by an event of this scale.
