I had a look on Geonets Shaking Map for this event and there were 2 reports from Auckland .............. and 2 from Wellington
I often wonder about the accuracy of these reports, come on now, felt in Wellington?
The Australians put the Felt range at 458km (approx) , Wellington is 1015km from the epi-centre

Are you going to try and get the full details of each event to show in a popup tag as well?
My GE has a hand as a curser when I have your files open, is this something you did when creating the files? I prefer an arrow, but thats just me.
FWIW When I was doing mine I got bored with the circle icons and went 3D earlier this year

looks bad, a simple 4.5 quake in the sea, .. on the microplate could possibly get a strong earthquake (8 +)? Somewhere on the Nazca plate, Cocos plate, or the Pacific plate. But perhaps even directly on the Galapagos plate. There must be strong tensions between the three panels to be ..
what do you think?

Did central Alabama have an earthquake this morning? I haven't been able to find anything on it.
It happened between 10 and 10:30 am cst. I was sitting on my veranda when I felt this weird vibration. I called a friend 2 miles away and she said she felt it too.
There have been more reports of another locust plague in Queensland's west, this time in the Barcaldine area. Earlier this year, Longreach residents experienced that town's biggest plague of spur-throated locusts in three decades. Authorities have been working to control swarms in the state's central-west, but researcher Chris Temp says they are around Barcaldine in huge numbers. "When we looked up in the sky, there are absolutely billions of grasshoppers," he said. "It's been going on for about seven days off or on and the State Government has been out here with the helicopter trying to contain the problem, but now they're absolutely exponential. "As far as the eye can see, these grasshoppers are filling the sky - it's a noise that you don't usually hear - it's like a hum up in the sky. "It's a bit disconcerting when you work out where that hum is coming from - like it's the hum of the wings. "All of a sudden you see billions of these grasshoppers going overhead and then it's like you start to realise the staggering size of what's going on." Graziers around Barcaldine say they have never seen so many grasshoppers. Barcaldine grazier John Chandler says insect pests are damaging trees and invading pasture in that region. He says authorities have been spraying concentrated swarms but controlling large areas is difficult. "They've been down here in the desert country east and south of Barcaldine for a few weeks now roosting in the trees," he said. "They've done enormous damage to mostly eucalypts but haven't done a lot of damage to grass. "I've never seen grasshoppers or locusts or whatever they are like this - they are like a dust storm rolling towards you." "You just have to slow right down on a bike because they fly up out of the grass and are quite incredible actually. "There are billions of them - we were just looking at them trying to work out how many there are."
