I thought this might interest you. There were a record 21 births in Christchurch on the day of the earthquake.

Thanks Tracey,

Not sure how to factor earthquakes into a natal chart but thanks. Very Happy

More generally, there is already a wikipedia page for the earthquake. Apparently the epicentre was was 40 kilometres (25 mi) west of Christchurch,near the town of Darfield. The earthquake began at 4.35am on September 4th.

I wonder if that always happens during earthquakes? Or if it is unique to NZ?!

This got me curious what the population of the area was. Obviously, we need to know average birth rate to know if this is abnormal or not.

The area administered by the Christchurch City Council has a population of 372,600 (June 2009 estimate). According to recent demographic research the birth rate of New Zealand is : 13.61 births/1,000 population (2007 est.)

That means if birth rates follow New Zealand averages there should about 14 births each day in Christchurch. So its certainly higher than average but hardly spectacular.
