Small compared to what we're used to in Chch but prolonged far more than usual, quite a bit of low rumbling noise. Lots of long slow movement, big event far away.

Barely felt it. Thought is was a 4.something until I heard that it was in the North Island.

Actually, it was a magnitude 7 :(

This is what coming next (predicted)-


Personal thought - scary

Certainly felt it here in Plimmerton. Computer/monitor started jiggling around. Peculiar vibration/noise leading up to it.

Ran upstairs to see if the plasma needed holding. Later wondered why as I would love a new smart TV!!

"No matter where you live"
"No matter what you believe"
Sounds like the effects of the American banking system rather than anthing physical??
