the quake struck at 9.22pm, centred 90km southwest of Te Anau. It was felt strongly by residents in Invercargill, Dunedin, Timaru and as far north as Wellington

People in the area report that there was quite a bit of shaking, And that cracks have appeared on door frames ect,

There is some concern over the quake as it seems to have varied quite a bit from 6.6 to 8.2

o: U.S. West Coast, Alaska, and British Columbia coastal regions
From: NOAA/NWS/West Coast and Alaska Tsunami Warning Center
Subject: Tsunami Information Statement #1 issued 07/15/2009 at 2:44AM PDT

A strong earthquake has occurred, but a tsunami IS NOT expected along the California, Oregon, Washington, British Columbia, or Alaska coast. NO tsunami warning, watch or advisory is in effect for these areas.

Based on the earthquake magnitude, location and historic tsunami records, a damaging tsunami IS NOT expected along the California, Oregon, Washington, British Columbia, and Alaska coasts. At coastal locations which have experienced strong ground shaking, local tsunamis are possible due to underwater landslides.

At 2:23 AM Pacific Daylight Time on July 15, an earthquake with preliminary magnitude 7.8 occurred off the west coast of South Island, New Zealand. (Refer to the United States Geological Survey for official earthquake parameters.)

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center in Ewa Beach, Hawaii will issue a tsunami warning for regions near the epicenter.

This will be the only statement issued for this event by the West Coast/Alaska Tsunami Warning Center unless conditions warrant. See the WCATWC web site for basic tsunami information, safety rules, and a tsunami travel time map and table. (NOTE: Travel time maps and tables indicate forecasted times only, not that a wave was generated.)


So looks like no worries for the west coast USA as far as a tsunami for the moment.

I'm not sure what to think, I'm at least 15k's out of from the water so I'm okay.
Most people right now along the inlands will be eating dinner and TV, so if there's any warnings on there they'll be aware. Still it's worrying how big this is getting.

What about the couple of earthquakes we had in Australia not long ago too? 2 within the same month, and we NEVER get earthquakes like that.
