Update on the Recovery Process in Christchurch, NZ

As was noted in the articles about the H. Sandy recovery proceeding far more slowly than most would like, the same thing is true in Christchurch.

Thanks to Ian McLean of New Zealand for this link to an updated account of the recovery process in Christchurch. Although the article is based heavily on an interview with the former mayor, Bob Parker, Ian noted that much of what Parker had recommended to city officials was not mentioned and that 10 of  his recommendations were never acted upon.

Update on March 6th:  As if the folks in Christchurch did not have enough to deal with, apparently they just experienced a one in 100 year flood. See this article and video account.

Thanks to Barbara Word for the link
