Geonet says it was centered 15 km east of Ekatahuna, initialally reported as a 6.2.

Damn, our house shook like hell (Palmerston North here).

Felt shaking in Whakatane, but not sure whether it's the same one or not (although Geonet doesn't yet report any closer ones).

I wasn't in Wellington for the ones last year, but this one had the whole house moving.

Hope people closer to the epicenter are all good.

It would also shut down the rail network until all lines in the area are checked.

Rotorua again left out, so much for being the centre of seismic activity, Havent felt a quake in years.




Common sense is not as common as you think.

Telecom BB all good in Otaki Beach. It was a much more violent earthquake here than the last ones, we've lost a few vases and pictures from the walls this time. I was hanging onto my three screens though !

Car in the driveway looked like someone was rocking it.

My wife and kids were at the beach 200 yards away and didn't feel a thing !

It was quite exciting; our house in Martinborough was shifting well and I was really hoping the TV was going over (looked like it would!).
