At the time of the quake Jo McKenzie was living in Montrose homestead, a house she had grown up in as a child.  She was asleep on the upstairs floor with her husband Dave and three young children.  In her interview she describes their dramatic escape to the upstairs veranda and off the roof as the house was falling apart.  She also talks about the ongoing impact on herself and her children from the shock, and from having to leave their family home and move into a cottage on the farm.
