Earthquake study prepares capital for the worst
A big quake could leave Wellington cut off from the rest of the North Island for four months, new disaster predictions show.
It could take 40 days to restore the water supply to even a basic level, while road access could take up to 120 days, according to "worst case" predictions presented to the region's Civil Defence Emergency Management Group.
That could leave Wellington residents or commuters trapped in the city for months, and dependent on water rations being distributed by authorities for about six weeks.
The predictions relate to a quake of magnitude 7.5 or higher, and come after a magnitude-7 quake off Taranaki on Tuesday.
The long, rolling quake, at 230 kilometres deep, was felt throughout the lower North Island and upper South Island at 10.36pm. Rail services were suspended while tracks were inspected for damage.
