About this creation
Lego survives anything, even earthquakes!

A little after 4:30am on Saturday (4th Sept) a magnitude 7.1 earthquake struck my city, causing an estimated $4-billion worth of damage and leaving hundreds of people homeless and many businesses destroyed... Ripped from sleep, my first thoughts were that a dinosaur was trying to rip my roof off, its funny the things that go through your head during a brief moment of terror... but its ok, my Lego is just fine.

Another quake? You need to find somewhere else to live! It was a miracle that nobody was killed in the big quake last year, but it's tragic that over 65 (current estimate) have been killed in this quake. I hope that this is the last one for a long time.

Interesting idea, houses made of Lego, just sort it out and build again. Also very handy when you move from one place to another!

Whoa. I'm a little late to comment, but I'm glad you and your important possessions are okay. I was in the 6.something earthquake in California a few years ago and that was pretty, well, 'exciting'. :P Your fireplace is deceased, but at least you have your intricate stain-glass window still intact!

There has been earthquakes over in West Virginia in the USA! And WV is up in the mountains on the East side. O.O? And where I live, I'M ON A MAJOR FAULT LINE! But it's too deep to feel anything. Glad you're okay Leda.

Lego can survive ANYTHING! i through a 2X2 brick into a volcano once and the next morn it was on my pillow! JK! Glad your stuff made it!

You're safe, you're Lego is safe, and from what I hear, most of the people are fine as well. NZ must be God's chosen land. A quake that size and no "major" injuries. Really glad you're safe (and the Lego too!)! Now get ready, you got round 3 coming up in a few minutes (and I don't want to hear any "act of god" excuses)! ~ Chris.

Quoting Matthew Vos Who cares about your Lego is TOBY!! ok?
Thank you for asking, yes Toby is ok. A little spooked because we've had over 200 aftershocks, some up to magnitude 5.4, but him and his older sister Sue are just fine.
Quoting Waffles . Did any cats die?
I don't know, I turn off the news reports if they mention animals because I don't want to hear about it. No people died, miraculously.
Quoting Yuri Fassio Nice one :) You could have told us if your home was OK too, to put us out of worry...
The chimney has detached itself from the wall...
Quoting Kenghis Ghan Screw the plastic! Is the skull mantlepiece ok?!?
Hahahahaha!!!! Its cool eh?
Quoting Ben The Lego Builder I really like the Darth Vader picture on the screen that you were watching.
Oh yeah, the all Star Wars all the time network...

Did any cats die? Hopefully not... 7.1 huh? In L.A. we're expecting one in a few years that is a super earthquake, like a 9.8 or something. It's really scary. Hopefully it doesn't come like the scientists say it will... Glad to know your okay, and your lego as well. ~Waff
