CNN and Sky News Australia are giving this a fair amount of air time (even putting tv1 and 3 to shame)

Fox news was "awaiting casualty reports from the unreachable NZ authorities" ROFL.

"The Deep Cove Hostel manager and his wife, who are based at Doubtful Sound, said the quake was so severe they hid under a table.

The manager reported loud bangs in the area which might indicate slips and he heard water "swooshing loudly" in the sound."

Thats a LOT of water to be swooshing around...

freitasm: And soon after a very small one here in Wellington...

The Geonet ( is not responding well - timeout, no access. Perhaps overloaded?

Geonet doesn't list anything for Wellington area. I felt it up here in Paraparaumu!
I reckon it was part of the South Island quake
Map shows that Wellington region WOULD have felt that quake

felt the one at 9:40pm in Palmerston North. Was reading a book and felt my bed shake a little, nothing major, probably about the same as when a train goes past (am about 100m from train tracks as the crow flies)
