Just had an earthquake in Hastings. No damage here but a good shake. Don't know where the epicentre is. My cat is freaked.

Felt it down here by Kaiapoi, Christchurch area. It was just a wee rumble for us, but then again we're so far away.

 

I see https://felt.geonet.org.nz/ is down all of a sudden, wow.

There is always the little ones that very few people feel, but as the graph from NZ Quake live shows, it's was the biggest in a while

Long in Wellington (7th Level office) but not strong at all.  People in the meeting stopped talking for a while.

From my foundation sensor in Upper Riccarton, Christchurch:

 

(Equivalent here to a shallow M4 at Islington, Christchurch)

 

 

Significance is calculated from X = North / South, Y = West / East, Z = Up / Down.

 

If significance was over 3 it used to report to a USA University.

What's the measure on that chart?  

 

Edit - sorry - didn't read it, m/s/s.

 

I didn't feel the quake.  Coincidentally, the first quake I have felt for months was a shallow M3, epicentre <2km from out place, woke me up at about 6:20 this morning with a rumble and a small bump.

Felt as a sharp jolt, then a long drawn out rumble then another strong jolt in Grenada North. Sounds like earthquakes travel slowly, as I posted about it on Facebook after the first jolt, and some of my friends in Christchurch reckon it was 20-30 seconds later they felt it down there.

Looks like just over 2 minutes to reach Christchurch from GeoNet's recorded time.
