A flyover picture taken this week... 1300 buildings gone - and 300 to go.
The first photo shows the original CBD taken from Google earth
The second shows the extent of the damage post Feb 2011 (although you might need to zoom in to see the rubble)
and then look at the third picture, which were loosely made predictions Scott made based on the maps showing all the red and orange stickered buildings post Feb 2011 quake. We didnt want to accept it then - but the reality grows closer.
