Did you know that Christchurch had the worst destructive disaster in New Zealand? It was an earthquake. Before the earthquake the Cathedral was okay but then out of nowhere came a gigantic earthquake. After the Cathedral was sadly a piece of rubble. The earthquake left 185 people tragically dead and thousands injured. It happened in 2011.
