We are fine down here. Hardly any damage to buildings etc in the South Island. I am from Auckland and didn't feel it up here.

The main news has said nothing about it since, seems like a warning that did not end up being a disaster, must take some force then for the like of the 2004 tsunami.

And the hits just keep rolling ! 5.4 5.3 5.1 all within the last hour and a half.

Maybe there is a new island that's going to be made over there!

lol! no it's just me letting off a bit of ... erm ... hot air.


i live in Invercargill which is the closest city to the centre of these quakes. the big one lasted over a minute for us and felt like we were on a tiny boat in high seas.

at first i thought "wow, cool, earthquake". then when i didn't stop i though, "ooh, crap, earthquake", and rushed to brace my fridge and china cabinet while the kids dashed for cover under doorframes. and then when it still didn't stop, i ran to post online to see where the epicenter was.

within moments enough other kiwis had posted for me to figure that we were getting the brunt of it so that was a relief. had it been felt so strongly down here yet come from the top of the country ... well ... that woulda been bad.

we're still getting shaking today ... i feel sea-sick.

That is pretty normal for after shocks. If you look at the past 10 years you will see EVERY DAY has at least TWO 5.0 or higher quakes and if you look at the list in active regions like the Aleutian Islands in Alaska some days you can see over 100 per day

The 7.8 will most likely be downgraded by tomorrow when all the data is in

apparently our soil density, sparse population and strict building codes helps lesson damage. *touch wood*

that said, the big one was bad enough, in a lot of other countries it would have been massively destructive. it hasn't been downgraded either ... 7.8 it is and it sure felt like it too, lol.


we're still being hit by 5's during the last couple of days, it's a pain in the a** but oh well. i read once our capital city shook for months on and off last century ... hope that's not gonna be the case here.

Uuuh, I'm pretty certain that it was a natural 'quake.
We have thousands of earthquakes a year in New Zealand, the majority are nothing to be concerned about, but every so often along comes a doozie like this.
Natural through and through.
If the NWO wanted to make a quake to send a message then why would they choose one of the least populated places to run it?
Natural, through and through.

Well..... i'm glad that it didn't do the damage it could have done.... and don't worry about those aftershocks.... they could add to your night time fun & games ; )

Take care over there.......

Yes, there's always something bad associated with Earthquakes.....and this after we spend more than 80 million years trying to get away!

Just glad that it occurred in a sparsely-populated area. We shouldn't rest on our laurels however because this probably wasn't "the big one" which will hit sometime. Basically it's just reconfigured the stress vectors.
