    wow! then the way the buildings swayed in the earlier earthquakes... i wonder if there's any internal damages inflicted on the buildings as they swayed!!

    Not likely, buildings, even concrete ones, are flexible. But sometimes not flexible enough for quakes, hence they fall over.

    redhill also affected.

    ONE SAFETY FEATURE YOU MAY WANT TO ADOPT IN SUCH SITUATIONS
    besides the usual precautions like hiding under a table in case of falling concrete should an earthquake develope or preparing to evacuate, keep ALL DOORS IN YOUR HOUSE OPEN. that includes the front door. if the door frame is damaged by the shocks, you may not be able to open the door to escape.
