Aftershock risk increases

The news just keeps on getting better and better.... not sure how much of this the city can take ....

"Christchurch is at greater risk of another large aftershock following Monday’s quakes, according to GNS Science.
GNS Science seismologist Gill Jolly told Radio New Zealand there was a 30 per cent chance of an earthquake in Canterbury similar to the magnitude 6.3 one which struck on Monday, or the one on February 22, within the next year.

Last month the agency said there was a one in four chance of the region experiencing an earthquake between magnitude 6 and 6.9 in the next 12 months."
