Yes, mostly Lincoln/Rolly area but a few rogue ones out here near Hororata/Kirwee/Darfield and even across the Waimakariri at View Hill (2 x 3+'s) since last night.

Steady on there. The City is nowhere near leveled, nor almost. Sure, there were old buildings around that did not survive, and houses in inappropriate areas/not well built for these conditions; but there was not a citywide levelling.
The majority of buildings still standing are intact.

We are attempting to go about our daily lives and much of the City is intact.

Interesting drum at the moment from Mangatainoka. Unrelated, at least directly.

Muzzy - details of the Kaikoura quakes are on the Quake Live list :-

Aoraki - I also made comment on the Mangatainoka River on the GeoNet FB site - wonder if it's thermal activity related - hot springs nearby? Small quake after that "noise", too.

GeoNet is really behind with their reporting, but they're probably snowed under.

Na can't see them

Looking for 10 quakes in 10 minutes, they aren't there.
This is the day before the multiple 3's and 2's spread out othroughout the day of the 15th.

Quite a comprhensive site, even got the street addresses where they are available

whoever is doing this has done a nice job

love the magnitude page

Hello friends from afar,

I haven't been to the thread in a bit but today I felt a need to check in.

I do like the active quake maps you have all provided and was surprised you are still getting quite a few mid-3's with 4's in there...... wow.

I can only imagine how you feel and all I can do from here is send my love your way and hope you and your families all stay safe.

My best to all of you

The 7.1 may have rocked us two weeks ago....

.. but tonight Metallica rocked us!

Man, that concert was a real let off of steam for a lot of us Cantabrians

The aftershocks have really tailed off - I expected them to continue with greater regularity for a while longer yet... not sure it's over yet.. in fact, have a horrid feeling the 7.1 was the start of something... just can't believe the earth rips itself a new one (fault!) and then dozes off again so quickly....

EDIT: Mother Nature must agree with me - as I posted the above I felt an aftershock!!!

3 shakes this Saturday night !
a 3.8 at 7.46pm, a 4.1 at 7.58pm and a 4.0 at 8.01pm

the deepest was 9km, all close to Christchurch

not too happy, hoping they are not building up to a other large quake

Must admit am getting a bit tired of these aftershocks... on the bright side already had the assessor around and contractor to quote for a new driveway.

I've long thought this isn't going away anytime soon...

For those that don't bother reading the Quake Watch 2010 Tread heres a map of all


aftershocks so far, sorry its only available as Google earth KMZ file, as there are too many icons (epicentres) for Google Maps to cope with
The file is divided into magnitudes which are listed by date/time.
You can click or unclick each sub file to see each magnitude locations.
Hover mouse over icon to get quake size, click on it to get detail on popup balloon

I just threw this together because Geonet have started listing the extra smaller 2's missed before and the numbers are building up
Day1 - 9 extra quakes
Day2 - 7 extra
Day3 - 106 extra
Day4 - 64 extra
Day5 - 68 more
and so on

Should have read Greendale not Ferndale ( thinking of California faultline name by mistake)

I can't be bothered waiting until they release the GPS co-ordinates of the Fault Traces (if they ever do) so I took Dr. Quigleys map and plotted the lines on Google Earth as best I could. Good to within half a paddock

Quite a ways south of the main aftershocks area, so not related to the Darfield/Greendale Fault, but not a regular area for earthquakes in Canterbury that I can recall.

Reference Number 3380862/G

Latitude, Longitude 43.86°S, 171.65°E

Yeah, there's a lot of discussion going on among friends and watchers about that one. GeoNet left a comment on their FB page to say the Ashburton 4.1 wasn't an aftershock.

Can you tell me how they might have come to that conclusion and if the quakes we're getting up here near the Springfield Fault (up near Sheffield/View Hill/Springfield) are also not aftershocks?

The quick answer is that its nowhere near the new Greendale Fault where the Main 7.1 shock was.
Not sure about the Springfield Fault, there is no fault with that name on the NZ Fault database, the nearest fault to Springfield is the Coopers Creek Fault which runs parallel with the Porters Pass fault in a SW to NE direction north of Springfield.

Bit of a cluster of aftershocks between Hororata and the Rakaia River yesterday

None of those reported as felt, despite the shallow depth and all mag 3+

S'pose the farmers there too busy out working in the sunshine ( may take a while to fully load, there are 29 maps on that page now)

Felt a few out here yesterday - I'm ashamed to say I don't rush to fill in reports anymore.
