Hornby - rumble heard and then a bit of a gap before the wobble - either quite a way away or a lot deeper than usual .

Wondered if it was quite a bigger shake elsewhere (ie couple handy kms away?)

By the sea: a good rumble and rattle that went on for a bit.

Wasn't that bothered this time, unlike the last few surprises!

3.8 ; 8 tonnes - felt more like a 4.5. They say 'slight' pffff not in our house it wasn't , there were two booms and then the whole house went. Linwood. Just like the old days eh?

Depends where you are. Just a gentle roll here out west.

I've been right over some doozies though, that you would absolutely *swear* were not as low as they're officially called! If it's right under you, it's pretty magnified.

It was a bit harsh in Sumner, enough to make me think, shit! But then we haven't had any for quite a while.

Its a precurser to the Alpine Fault.

astrophe, Apr 6, 4:40am
In that the Alpine Fault has not gone yet, and this therefore happened before that, yes.

But then, my having pancakes this morning could be considered a precursor to the Alpine Fault, in that case.

I believe it may be Port Lyttletons reaction to Ecans just released development plan !
