Landslide damage, Whitecliffs

During the earthquake a steep limestone cliff collapsed, causing a landslide that crushed the home of the Jackson family. This helicopter is hovering above the remains of the house, the day after the earthquake. Because of damage to the roads, helicopters were initially the only way to get in and out of Īnangahua.
