Quote:A large earthquake has been felt across the North and South Islands tonight.

The 7.0 magnitude quake was centred 60 km south-west of Opunake at a depth of 257 kilometres.

The earthquake was felt across the North Island from Taranaki to Bay of Plenty and down to Wellington and as far south as Canterbury.

The earthquake was heavily felt in Wellington city where many residents took to social media sites to report of a long, rolling shake.

The Wellington Region Emergency Management Office has said there is no tsunami threat from tonight's earthquake.

A Fire Service spokesman said there had been no reports of significant damage yet.

"It is at a depth of 257 kms, which means we are pretty lucky at the moment."

A small aftershock of magnitude 3.8 struck 15 km east of Christchurch just after 11pm.

What's going on there is scary as hell. I swear it's time for him to take Johnathan and relocate.

I hope he isn't waiting for Johnathan to make the decision. Johnathan can wait around and watch the action and then fly to safety. Ocker can't do that.

I'll say it again:

There's plenty of room for all God's creatures. Right next to the mashed potatoes!

Yeah Im ok but we did feel it here in Christchurch

it actually felt like one of our everyday 4.6 ers (weve now had 11300 in 19 months)
BUT the one last night was away up in the North Island and it was very deep 230 Ks

it was felt in places thousands of ks away , it would have been catastrophic it it had been only 10 ks deep like these in CH CH

Nah, I've always been too much of a loose cannon.
That's probably why Ironworking was perfect for me.



Glad Ocker is OK, but I had no doubt.
