Fitzgerald's Town

that it was demolished. The second caused little damage, although parts of the surrounding countryside were badly affected by liquefaction, but in neither earthquake was there loss of life. Our town is built on deep clay loams which are much more stable than the sands and silts underlying some suburbs such as Halswell and Bexley and the town of Kaiapoi. In these and other suburbs liquefaction was widespread and terrifying. The memory of these events, and the many aftershocks which followed, will remain with those who experienced it for the rest of their lives. Despite the trauma and grief for those who died and for our city, we are grateful for the help which poured in from around the world and know that the city in one form or another will rise from the ruins.
