After a conversation with one of our resident Kiwis (Alien, big thanks! ) it appears that a good deal of construction is taking place in the area specified by USGS, including (very significantly) a large scale rock quarrying operation (actually 2-3 of them).

Which brings me to this point: Is it possible that 20,000 odd people, all jumping up and down, stamping, banging and making a hell of a racket might create readings like that?? The reason I ask, is that following the rugby...right around that time...at the Stadium in the city (not that far from the South Karori Station), Peter Jackson (Lord of the Rings fame) had the crowd all jump up and down, bang and stamp and yell their lungs out...to record all that noise for an Orc Army/Battle scene for LotR 3 - Return of the King.
An earthquake that hit China's northern region of Inner Mongolia on Sunday toppled more than 7,900 homes, killed three people and injured 1,000.
The quake, measuring 5.9 on the Richter scale, could be felt as far away as the capital Beijing.
