In direct line from Halswell to Taylors Mistake, hence the same fault as the 6.3. So a 5.3 being one magnitude less is the expected pattern, maybe 3 weeks late though.

We lost power for over an hour - so it was takeaway for tea :-)
Apart from that, no damage done.

And Queensland had one too. I remember the Newcastle quake that killed more than a few. Yes Australia gets quakes too.

They say Auckland doesn't get quakes? Really? We'll see!
