Christchurch Earthquake Anniversary
A tear-stained Christchurch is nearly through the ''worst of it'', Prime Minister John Key has told residents while marking the second anniversary of the February 22 quake.

A series of events are being held around Christchurch today to mark the terrible destruction brought by the quake and to remember the 185 people killed.

More than 500 people gathered at Latimer Square for the main memorial service, where Key and mayor Bob Parker gave speeches.

Key urged Cantabrians to ''persevere'' and ''stay strong''.

"In the past two years, I would bet more tears have been shed in this city than in the rest of the country put together," said Key.

"We're just about through the worst of it. Better times are ahead as we rebuild a city that we can all be proud of."

Key said the Government was "absolutely committed" to the rebuild and hoped people could remain patient.

"I know it's hard, I know there's still suffering, and everyone is anxious for things to go faster, but this job is unprecedented in the world, and we should judge ourselves by how we have come so far."

He paid tribute to those who lost loved ones in the quake. "Your grief is still raw, and only time can help numb the pain of your loss."

Parker said the rebuild needed to produce a city that honoured the losses of the past two years.

EQ was very shallow one around 5 km depth and hit around 10 km S SE from Christchurch ..

That's main reason way this EQ was so devastating also deadly ..

Royal penguin stranded on New Zealand beach dies

WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) — A royal penguin that became stranded on a beach more than 1,000 miles from its sub-Antarctic home has died at a New Zealand zoo.

The penguin was emaciated and suffering kidney failure when it arrived at the Wellington Zoo after being found Sunday by hikers.

They have a yellow crest, eat krill and squid and generally live around Macquarie Island, about halfway between New Zealand and Antarctica. They are considered a threatened species but not endangered. They shed all their feathers during an annual molt, which the New Zealand penguin had been doing when found. Its sex had not been determined.

It was just the fourth time over the past 100 years that a royal penguin has been found on the North Island of New Zealand.

Seismic research reveals 200 extra fault lines

Niwa said a particularly large fault found offshore near Canterbury had the potential to cause a significant tsunami.

In the last decade there have been tens of thousands of marine shakes, some easily felt and some hardly registering.

Two of the most devastating earthquakes in the past 10 years were not so because of the shaking, but rather the tsunamis which came after.

Some good info also ..

New faultlines found
03/06/2011

Several new active faultlines have been discovered in Canterbury - one under Barbadoes St and one out to sea.

Scientists, speaking at a press conference in Christchurch this afternoon, said survey work in the region had uncovered new faultlines.

One fault is at sea and is considered the greatest risk for a magnitude-6.0 to 7.0 earthquake. However, it is not considered a tsunami risk.

The other fault is under Barbadoes St in central Christchurch and may have given the Boxing Day quake a home.

However, the GNS Science research confirms that the Canterbury region has a low fault risk in the long term, with the September and February quakes considered "very rare" occurrences.

The current risk from another large quake in Christchurch is similar to the risk of a quake striking Wellington.

GNS natural hazards research platform manager Kelvin Berryman said it was widely known before the latest investigation that there were several dozen active faults within an 80-kilometre radius of Christchurch.

However, preliminary studies of Canterbury's two major quakes confirmed there was a complex arrangement of faults in the bedrock under Canterbury and Pegasus Bay.

An offshore seismic survey of southern Pegasus Bay revealed a previously unknown offshore fault about 25km long - similar in length to the Greendale Fault, meaning it could potentially generate an earthquake of magnitude 6.0 to 7.0.

"For an earthquake of magnitude 6 or greater to be generated, a fault of 10km or more in length is needed," Berryman said.

Quake may hit trench, says expert
4 Feb 2013
Hawkes Bay Today (NZ)

Less than 100km off the coast of Hawke's Bay is a deep-water trench that could be the site of a potential megathrust earthquake similar to the 2011 Japan earthquake, says seismologist Kevin Furlong.

Despite the Hikurangi Trench's potential, he said very little was known about the underwater valley, where the Pacific plate was dragged underneath the Australian plate.

Professor Furlong, of Pennsylvania State University, said the worst-case scenario for the East Coast was not yet known.

"Many, if not most, scientists working on these megathrust earthquake plate boundaries would argue that, although it is very, very unlikely, until we can demonstrate otherwise we should expect that major segments of these boundaries could rupture simultaneously.

"Most of the time, as was the case in Japan for the past several hundred years at least, segments rupture individually and so maximum earthquakes are in the mid-to high magnitude 7 range. But on rare occasions, such as in 2011 in Japan, bigger ruptures can occur.

Earthquake Swarms continue in Hawkes Bay, New Zealand.

This regions suffered a 7.9 Magnitude Earthquake in 1931 killing over 250 people.

Several earthquakes have shaken a Hawke’s Bay town this evening.

GeoNet said one quake, of 4.2 magnitude, hit at 5.46pm, 40km south-east of Wairoa.

The focal depth of the quake was 15km, and was of moderate intensity, said GeoNet.

A few minutes later, at 5.51pm, a 4.1 magnitude earthquake hit in the same area.
