Hopefully this won't mean anything for NZ, but around 7.30pm tonight NZ Time an 8.5 Quake has been recorded off Chile, the Geonet website here is showing the quake on a lot of the measuring equipment in NZ.
No Tsunami warning for New Zealand yet but I know we've been hit by a wave from that area before

I'm keeping an eye on the Pacific Tsunami Warning centre's website, warnings slowly being extended out
Nothing on NZ as yet but I would not be surprised if they do place our east-coast on a watch

There was some talk about evacuating an area near Christchurch which was very near sea level. There'll be an update every 30 minutes on TV1.
