Well we survived the night... in a tent >.>

Talk about paranoid. Nothing happened, but we went for a camping trip in the highlands anyway.

We're still being told to avoid the waters edge on the radio this morning, because the swell is going to be huge. Surfers are going to go nuts.

Fooff,

Having seen first hand what a tsunami can do those are some really brave surfers. I respect mother natures power, and have been humble a few times in my lifespan, but the tsunami takes the cake.

Please everyone stay safe, it's better to be a bit cautious on the tsunami warnings or watches.

No worries asala. Thank you for creating this thread.

It was our biggest quake in 76 years and it sure felt like it. I found the quake to be rather exciting. Some wussy Queenstowners like Skinon had to grab their blanky and flee to the doorways


It is strange feeling the ground shake like that for so long though. I will admit to being a teeny, incy wincy bit nervous. Your mind starts to race, entertaining thoughts like "Asteroid? super quake? Nuke? Is this the end?
?

All this 2012 talk is starting to get to me...................... na I'm cool


Peace

Just a little nugget of infor from this quake, It seems that when this quake happened it moved New Zeland a little closer to Australia by 12 inches



Aerial inspection of forests near the quake's epicentre showed few land slips or other signs of damage.

This was partly because the rupture, at the boundaries of the Australian and Pacific plates, directed its energy largely westwards towards the sea rather than inland.

There are still aftershocks of relative size occurring. Could the big one that caused no damage just be a warning?

It could just be the stress level, It had a pretty big move so i assume there has to be a release of tension fro a little while to come,

Hopefully its not the sign of anything more to come, i would like to think its had its wake up and stretch,
