Is this normal after a quake?
Sulphur smell' reported in Christchurch
GNS Science says it was magnitude 5.1 at 7.49am on Wednesday, at a depth of 6km, 10km north-west of Diamond Harbour. GNS says the aftershock was felt so strongly because it was closer to the city. Geologist Mark Quigley from the University of Canterbury says the magnitude 5.1 earthquake, may have been caused by another previously unknown fault. He says the initial earthquake may be putting pressure on adjacent faults.
Six seismological stations will form the National Seismological Network. Two stations (Tsumeb and Windhoek) are in operation and four stations (RUndu, Kamanjab, Aus and Ariamsvlei) will be installed by the end of 2005.
