Has anyone in the know made mention to that volcano, is it waking? I think the people in the know need to take seriously new fissures opening I think you in New Zealand might just be the beginning.
This is something we all need to keep a check on, I can't even imagine how you are all coping with this but I am so happy to hear that you are there for each other.
My best to you all
What is with the reported hot spring activity on Banks Peninsula?
This is no cause for concern. When earthquakes occur, they liberate deep waters and gases from the crust and from hot springs. This is nothing unusual and DOES NOT mean that the ancient volcanoes on Banks Peninsula will erupt ! The last time the volcanic centres of the Banks Peninsula erupted was ~5.8 million years ago and they are well extinct. There is no evidence of magma remaining beneath Banks Peninsula.

So what do you make of the Kaikoura quakes earlier? The GeoNet guys said on their Facebook page that they will be releasing a news article about it later today or tomorrow morning. They weren't what I'd class normal for the area.. ?
