by Michael Harpen, Raina Kelly, and Barrett Jackson

Introduction

On February 22nd, 2011, Christchurch, New Zealand suffered one of the worst natural disasters in the history of the country: a magnitude 6.3 ML earthquake, which killed 185 people and caused billions of dollars in damage. The disaster was a profound shock to New Zealand’s second largest city and its survivors.

Two years later, CGN interviews three Christchurch citizens who are at the center of the rebuilding effort: Onno Mulder, Warren Goddard, and Shauna McClelland. They share their firsthand experience with the earthquake, the handling of the immediate aftermath, their efforts to rebuild, and the city’s future plans.
