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.

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.
