Sentinel - Canterbury earthquake anniversary and 2022 updates

Posted by Sentinel on 23/02/22 4:42 PM | 1 minute read

Yesterday marked the 11 year anniversary of an event that forever changed lives. At Canterbury Seismic Instruments we take a moment to reflect on those lives that were changed by the 22 February 2011 Christchurch earthquake. We consider those lost and those who lost, we thank those who worked (and continue to work) towards recovery, and we celebrate those who work toward better tools for resilience. This time every year is a reminder why we created the Sentinel Earthquake Resilience Service, the anniversary of this event brings us an annual reminder of why we endeavour to bring data to more decisions in the aftermath of an earthquake. 

Placing flowers in road cones became a symbol of hope during the aftermath of this earthquake and is still happening in neighbourhoods today.
