Yesterday, around 5 in the afternoon, we had a pretty frightening earthquake. Here's the info: http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=10901290 I read a couple of American reports and they are horribly erroneous, so steer clear of them According to the Las Vegas Guardian we are 76km south of Brooklyn and 8km east of Sirolo, Italy that's news to me! The same paper, in another article, reported that the epicentre was near Seddon, a town in Autralia, but it was off the coast of Seddon at the top of the South Island, New Zealand. We've had a couple of the last few days, but the 6.5 (some are saying 6.9) yesterday was the scariest. I was at work, sweeping up out back when it happened and just stood there in shock watching the pub shake. My girlfriend was also at work, and she's really shaken about it all, especially considering her workplace is marked by the Earthquake Commission as being unsafe, in need of seismic strengthening etc. Since the Christchurch earthquake 2 years ago, this has set a lot of us on edge. There's one way in and out of Wellington and it's right on the main fault line.
