In central Wellington. Strong enough to have a number of things fall from shelves. No breakages though.

Whopper in Whitby. Biggest I've felt in the 18 years I've lived in Wellington.

I was sitting in the middle of a field at the lower hutt xmas in the park. Me and another guy seemed to feel it, but not many others. You was just a small roll that if you were moving you'd miss it.

Best place for an earthquake though, middle of a field with no building around.

Yes I felt it , it was 30 km out of picton I am in Blenheim in springlands.
I herd the rumbling then one big jolt. I thought it was a truck going passed at first.

You know how they say go under and table, well I was frozen I couldn't move it only lasted about 12 seconds or something.

I felt a very strong jolt man it was freaky.

Was in a restaurant in central Wellington with the wife and a couple of friends. Felt like the place shook sideways very briefly then lurched forward and back a few times. It was kind of like the ground was sliding. Not the strongest I've felt here but it I'd say it was certainly the most amount of movement.

Don't know about strongest since 1977. I recall a fair quake around '93 (again, I was in the CBD) which was like a giant hand picked the building up a foot or two and dropped it again. Will have to look that one up...

I was actually out for dinner at Portofino and it was a pretty shark, sudden shake. Interestingly enough that building appears to be the only place that has suffered any reported damage.
