After the Deluge

A stormy day in Christchurch. Torrential rain and high winds started sometime around midnight and lasted until late afternoon.

Near the Swanns Road bridge the Avon strains its banks.

Has the level of the land dropped in the recent earthquakes?

A couple of weeks ago this pair of swans were working towards raising a family
Now their nest seems to be completely underwater.

A more fortunate duck family.

Surface flooding in Avonside.

Not a heavy metal traffic cone but yet another sinkhole. Since the quakes they've been appearing in all sizes, all over the place.
