North Island woken by earthquake
Last updated 07:32 08/12/2012

Two quakes have rattled the North Island this morning.

The first magnitude 5.8 quake struck 25 kilometres south east of Tokoroa at 7.16am, GeoNet reported.

It was felt as far north as Auckland and widely throughout the central North Island and in Wellington. It was also felt in Marlborough, at the top of the South Island.

Re: 6.0 Earthquake - New Zealand - Taupo Volcanic Zone
usually USGS reports New Zealand earthquakes smaller than NZ governments own geonet magnitude.


judging my the area that people felt it, I think the American assessment of 6.3 is closer to the truth.

very deep. 197 kilometers.

deep inside the super volcano magma chamber.


this is the area that produced a VEI7 or VEI8 eruption about 1800 years ago that turned the sky red in Rome and China and caused a mini ice age.

Re: 6.0 Earthquake - New Zealand - Taupo Volcanic Zone
Geonet [link to geonet.org.nz] originally said 6.0, then 5.8. I knew instantly that it was stronger than that, but the depth could explain why the house felt like it was on roller skates.

Re: 6.0 Earthquake - New Zealand - Taupo Volcanic Zone
Geonet just said it was felt all over the North Island and as far south as Christchurch but it was not felt at the epicentre. These deep quakes are strange. The last big quake, which felt pretty scary to me, was centred miles away and very deep, no one felt it above the actual epicentre then either.

A huge 8+ deep quake could take out infrastructure to most of the North Island!
