Thanks for the extra stars
Well over here I think we are more into the technical side anyway.
Been watching the rescue effort on TV, its terrible, you feel like you should go down and help dig, but best left to the experts. Its 350km away
Aussie and American Rescue Teams have arrived to help
and the Japanese not far away.
The Aftershock sequence confirms this is a new earthquake, it all over Lyttelton, Banks Peninsula, Port Hills and Pegusus Bay.
I've plotted 61 so far, there have been a few more added since I downloaded the data earlier in the morning, they keep squeezing in missed ones, that
messes up my head.
I've loaded what I have anyway, for now, will do it again in the afternoon.
I haven't put the felt reports on the popup tags yet .............. do you realise how long that will take
, I only want to do it the once,
7 days NZ
so you can see the 6.3
Leading up to this I seen something on the 20th UTC that stood out and in hindsight I should have posted it here.
There was a sudden change in the Darfield Aftershock Series, a cluster in the Eyrewell Forest area, North of the Waimakairiri River. I hadn't noticed
any aftershocks there before.
So it may be significant, perhaps that was the shift to a new fault.
Not sure how it works though, shocks move north then bang a new fault to the south east.
