There would be a great liquefaction Christchurch risk when there is an earthquake that occurred for quite a long time just in time for the river beds to be shaken. That could pose a serious threat to the residents living around the area. When there is an earthquake, there is a possible risk that the soil beneath the ground especially those below the roads and near rivers could gradually turn into quick sand and can put the people there in danger. However, that could only last because it will not be permanent but we cannot determine how long will it last. When earthquakes happen, drivers and commuters are being warned to keep off the highways as they could be in danger of sinking because of the liquefaction that is happening beneath them. So it is important that governments must construct roads that are more compacted so it will not give in to an occurrence of liquefaction. When the community suffers these kind of phenomenon, it could be worse for anyone else than on being stuck in a muddy pavement. Thus, it is important that you evaluate very well where you choose to live. Make sure you identify the possible threats that could happen during your residency.
