Dried liquefaction a dusty problem in Chch

Wednesday 2 Mar 2011 9:06 a.m.

Strong winds in Christchurch this morning have stirred up dried liquefaction, causing dust to billow in the streets.

A 3 News camera captured a dust storm making its way down Stanmore Rd.

Military personnel working at cordons in the city are wearing breathing masks as a precaution.

Rain is expected in Canterbury today, which will put a damper on the dust, but also hamper rescue efforts.
