Without exaggeration, we all thought it was maybe a 10 because literally the whole house moved. We were thrown against the wall, thrown around the room, just absolutely terrifying." - Chris Brown from Lyttelton."I was on the fourth floor and I was just coming out of the toilets and I got thrown backwards, down and landed into the third floor. I didn't really know what happened and then I heard some people screaming out which were on the second or third floor and managed to pull them out. There was a guy on the second floor that was covered to his waist with concrete and stuff. Oh God, I've never seen anything like it in my life." - Todd Lynch."A lady grabbed hold of me to stop falling over ... It's not nice at all. We just got blown apart. Colombo Street, the main street, is just a mess ... There's lots of watereverywhere, pouring out of the ground. It's liquefaction, it's an absolute mess." - Christchurch Resident."We were in a meeting when the quake started and it wasn't long before it was phenomenally disorientating. There were about 10 of us on the fifth floor and we couldn't get out anywhere. It was hard to tell what had happened, but it wasn't long before we realised we were close to the ground, and the roof had fallen in and people on the street just came to help us, came to pull us out of the wreckage." - Pip Ramby, Rescued from the Canterbury Television Building."It was extremely violent. I was sitting there with a friend and the building just like exploded. It was like a movie. It took two or three seconds to comprehend what was going on ... and then we ran onto the street and the front fell out of the building right in front of me." - Lyttelton Resident."It was just scary. [The cathedral], it just came down, like shit, within about two seconds. Unbelievable, unbelievable." - Christchurch Resident."It was very, very strong, I was up on the top floor of the council building and I got thrown quite a distance. I got down to the street, scenes of great confusion, some very, very upset people, a lot of people crying. I know of people in our building that have been injured."- Christchurch Mayor Bob Parker."I was in the square right outside the cathedral - the whole front has fallen down and there were people running from there. There were people inside as well." - Camera Technician John Gurr."It was awful. It was the most frightening thing I've ever experienced. My husband wasn't in the house, he was outside and he had been thrown into the vegetable garden." - Jan on Radio New Zealand."We watched the cathedral collapse out our window while we were holding onto the walls. Every aftershock sends us rushing under the desks. It's very unnerving but we can clearly see there are other priorities out the window." - Gary Moore."It's huge, it's just huge. I just don't know whether there are people under this rubble." - Christchurch Priest."I'm trapped under here and I have no idea what's happening. I can hear [my co-workers] at times yelling for help but we're just stuck waiting. It's really hard." - Anne Voss, an Australian Trapped in the Pyne Gould Building."We may well be witnessing New Zealand's darkest day. This is an absolute tragedy for this city, for New Zealand, for the people we care so much about. People are just sitting on the side of the road, their heads in their hands. This is a community that is absolutely in agony." - NZ Prime Minister John Key."When the shaking had stopped I looked out of the window, which gives a great view onto Christchurch, and there was just dust. It was evident straight away that a lot of buildings had gone." - City Councillor Barry Corbett."It seemed to go on for a long time, paintings fell off the wall, glasses smashed, people were crying, plaster fell in - the roof fell in." - Francesca Mold, at the Airport.
