freitasm: Yes, but "latest" is going to move - ideal to have the Geonet unique URL but they are a bit slow for that...

Looks kind of sucks overthere in Gizy from whats on tv3.  The quake was kind of fun in Feilding but much more here and I would have been more freaked than excited.

I guess we will have to wait for daylight to see the real damages.

Looks like no body died (hope im not wrong on that one).

I felt it in Rotorua. Nothing broken, and as far as I know, DSL and phone still up the whole time, but the house truly was rocking on its foundations.
