Sum up the September 4 Canterbury quake anniversary in a single word

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

What word do you associate most with the September 4 earthquake in Canterbury?

As part of Stuff's upcoming coverage of the 10th anniversary of the quake, we want to hear your memories of the day life changed dramatically for so many.

We're collecting your submissions to create a word cloud to be published on the 10th anniversary.

It may be a word that describes how your life or your community has changed, or one that takes you back to that very moment the earth shook on the morning of September 4, 2010.

To share the word you believe best sums up the 10 years since the quake, click here or email stuffnation@stuff.co.nz
