Wee quake this morning?

anyone else feel the small quake this morning around 5am? There's nothing on Canterbury live or geonet - no quakes reported anywhere for hours in NZ, but it def felt like one here - Hornby.

Ya ow, usual small rumble, Windows rattling. Wouldn't beamy bigger than a size 3 (or under, depending how close it was. Lasted about 10 seconds? Def wasn't a truck going past.

I felt it, it was between 0510 and 0515.

Was just a baby one, nothing to be worried about.

Yes, felt it in Spreydon too. or more heard it rather than felt it

I felt it in Burnside. I was just waiting to see if it was going to get any bigger lol

hayster94, Oct 9, 6:54 am

It sure felt like it was going to get bigger, woke me up

Yep good rattle Huntsbury. 5.16 am. How can it not be on Geonet?

Felt it in Halswell. Something woke me up at 5am and then shortly afterwards the roof gave a huge creak.

Felt in Hillsborough - long rumble then sharp jolt - about 5.15am. No mention on ChCh Quake Map either. We have felt quite a few here that don't get official notice.

Funny, that. Hubby mentioned it but nothing was on Geonet, so I told him it must have been a truck.

roshu, Oct 9, 10:57 am

It's up on Geonet now:
M2.8 in Hornby at 5:17AM

2011-2012 we were getting a quake that size - or larger - about once an hour on average, and a M4+ about as frequently on average as we're getting M2+ now. Oh those were the days - not.

Glad they put it up - I knew it had happened, not totally crazy (yet). Also knew it was small

lizziep823, Oct 9, 7:25 pm

Not felt, still asleep that hour.

jessebird, Oct 9, 9:09 pm

Yes I heard and felt it. Somerfield

My pictures were on the floor yesterday and I thought we may have had a shake but didn't feel it. Obviously the walls did.
