Christchurch residents still debating whether to stay - Almost two and a half years since the last major quake in Christchurch, 60 per cent of insurance claims are yet to be paid. Gretchen Miller finds residents shell-shocked and on a knife-edge, struggling to decide whether to stay and rebuild or flee for good.

The magnitude 6.3 earthquake that devastated Christchurch was strong enough to shake 30 million tonnes of ice loose from Tasman Glacier at Aoraki Mt Cook National Park.

Broken River - Days after the city of Christchurch was devastated by a 6.3 magnitude earthquake, This Way Up's presenter Simon Morton traverses the city using the Avon River as his route. Travelling on a bicycle from the source of the Avon in the West to Heathcote Estuary in the East, where the Avon meets the Pacific, everyone has a story to tell. (44′20″)

2010 Earthquake

Reimaging Christchurch - After a major earthquake in September, 2010, and over 4,000 subsequent aftershocks, a second major quake, magnitude 6.3, struck Christchurch on February 22, 2011. This earthquake had a devastating effect on our city. The death toll numbers in the hundreds, and the majority of the CBD was destroyed. We now have a totally unique, unprecedented, and extraordinary opportunity before us. Our city is waiting to be rebuilt, and we can reimagine it in any form we choose.

More than 500 buildings in the city were damaged - more than 90 of those in the central city area.
