NC is doing alright, I talked to him last night about it a little bit as soon as I heard about it. I asked all Kiwi members in the seismic thread to report in so that we knew them all to be OK.

Hey guys, sorry for the delay, it didn't affect me at all.

Earthquakes are pretty common here, and that one was in an area so isolated that it only bounced possums out of the trees and upset the skiers.

Heres a pic of earthquakes here for the last 10 years, the star bottom left was the last.

I live near that knob sticking out on the right hand side about 1/2 way up.

Avout 5 - 6 hours drive from the star

good article here.
