Epicentre

These two pictures were taken today near the epicentre of Saturday's 7.1 earthquake. The first shows the latteral offset on what was previously the 'straight as an arrow' "Telegraph Road" not far from the "Charring Cross" near Darfield. As you can see the shift is about half the carriageway width. The second picture was taken on "Highfield Road" about 2km East from the first picture and not only shows the latteral displacement but also a drop of about 1.5m in what was previously a flat road.
