The picture to the right is an actual picture of a map that shows near real–time shaking intensity from New Zealand’s network of seismographs, I took a snapshot of this picture at about 9:55pm. Quite amazing really. Most of the movements are less than a magnitude of 3 but you can see the yellow spots where the intensity of the quake was felt stronger. The picture though gives a fairly clear picture of how much this country moves along our major faultlines. Just Look at Wellington!!
This quake would have been felt in much of the North Island including the city Wellington, Levin, Palmerston North, Wanganui, New Plymouth, Hastings and as far up as Hamilton and in the South Island around the Nelson, Benheim and Picton areas all felt it and reports show that it was felt as far south as Rangiora.
