Just FYI, I would trust readings from New Zealand's geologic agency (www.geonet.org.nz) rather than the overseas websites.
USGS and others tend to underestimate our NZ earthquakes.

I was told by Geonet the USGS use a different scale, 1 point lower than ours, in other words what Geonet reports as a 7 the USGS would report as a 6.

I don't think this is the case. USGS gave the Christchurch quake a 7.1 and Geonet a 7.

Your government measures quakes different. Your measurement equivalent is 10 -11% higher.

True that.

Here's another figure to throw in the mix :P. Good to see there is no major damage reported so far.

A large earthquake has rocked New Zealand's North Island on Tuesday night but no damage has been reported.


THE long, rumbling 6.5-magnitude quake struck around 2035 AEST, 60km southwest of Opunake in Taranaki at depth of 257km, GNS Science said.

A Fire Service central communications spokesman told AAP there were a number of calls but no reports of damage. The quake was felt hundreds of kilometres away in Christchurch.

Well believe what you want but I spoke directly to the scientists at Geonet and they told me the USGS use a different methodology and usually rate the same earthquakes 1 point lower than Geonet which explains why there are sometimes discrepancies. I don't want to argue about it, just passing it on in case someone was interested.

Peace, out..

Earthquakes can be measured accurately from any position on Earth because...it's round dumb ass. The countries with the most seismic measuring devices...spread out the furthest in a network, has the best measurement.

Large earthquake felt across NZ
Updated 11:15 AM Tuesday Jul 3, 2012



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 in Taranaki, Wellington, Napier, Manawatu and as far south as Christchurch.

The earthquake was heavily felt in Wellington city.

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.
