  • Abstract
    'It was one of the most violent earthquakes ever felt. Arriving by stealth after midnight on November 14, the Kaikoura magnitude 7.8 and its aftershocks shook New Zealand's heartland to its core and created a damage zone of epic proportions. Capturing the drama as it unfolded, Surviving 7.8 is a tough but fascinating study in resilience. Throughout the narrative are stories from the people affected - locals and tourists alike - covering the immediate reaction, the uncertainty and the turmoil, as well as the do-it-yourself attitude and steely resolve that defines who we are as Kiwis."--Book cover.
