A full hour after 7.1 #eqnz that woke the whole country up, Civil Defence is yawning & stretching & issuing a few tweets about evacuation

Well I think what we all learned is that if you live in 2016 and use social media for your info, don't count on Civil Defence
People have described the shaking as a north to south wobbling movement or a low growling rumble then a vibration.
The lines company for Gisborne, Wairoa and the East Coast says the quake caused two power outages in the region.
Eastland Network says the outages were near Rototahi and Waimata but power has since been restored to the 300 affected homes.
Meanwhile police and the fire service say there has been no reports of any damage yet.
RNZ listeners reported feeling the quake as far south as Akaroa and as far North as Kerikeri in Northland. www.radionz.co.nz...
