Thanks mate - things are not looking too good for most of the heritage buildings - approx. 50% have to be demolished and 10 000 homes could also be wiped off the face of the earth. Needless to say that the whole of NZ is on a downer right now

Thanks for the comment

I agree but I am happy to report that most of the stone buildings will be rebuilt - that is great news indeed

Thanks Lots happening, damaged buildings being demolished - water is back on, electricity is back on and stonemasons are very busy trying to restore the old stone buildings - people are returning to Christchurch and it is back to work for them. Looking at what happened to Japan we were very lucky

Not to make this even more depressing than it is, but what are the main heritage building losses? I mean, the ones that won't be rebuilt?
