Thinking of our Antipodean Sundermadders

Post  Hieronymus on 2016-09-01, 8:05 pm

Hope Nostalgic and Black Cat Kiwi and all their family and friends are okay after a 7.1 magnitude earthquake off the east coast of North Island.

I guess nature has a way of telling you to get things into perspective. 


New Zealand's North Island Shaken By 7.1 Quake

Residents of coastal areas in East Cape district are advised to evacuate their homes after the second major tremor in two days.

19:50, UK,Thursday 01 September 2016

New Zealand's North Island has been shaken by a 7.1 quake, with residents of the coastal areas of East Cape warned to move to higher ground.
The earthquake struck at about 4.40am local time and was centered about 80 miles northeast of Te Araroa at a depth of about 20 miles.
The quake was felt as far south as Akaroa - about halfway down the South Island - and as far north as Kerikeri, about 150 miles north of Auckland.

New Zealand's Ministry of Civil Defence, however, issued a "tsunami potential threat advisory" for all the country's coastal areas.
This was later upgraded to a tsunami warning for the North Island's East Coast, including Auckland, Waikato and Bay of Plenty and the country's upper South Island.
About 90 minutes after the quake, a wave height of 30cm was measured at East Cape, with the New Zealand Ministry of Civil Defence describing this as "the first tsunami activity" and warning that this activity "will continue for several hours".

GNS scientist Anna Keiser told Radio NZ that, although the wave sounded small, it was enough to generate a tsunami.
She added: "At this stage the 30cm is within the marine threat category and people should be vigilant."
Anyone living near the coast in the area has been warned to leave their homes, take their radio with them and immediately go to higher ground.

According to Geonet, which monitors New Zealand's earthquakes, there were 28 aftershocks in the hour following the quake.
Two of these were described as severe - measured at 5.6 and 6.2 on the Richter scale.
No damage has been reported, although power was cut briefly to around 300 homes.
The quake comes a day after a 5.7 tremor nearby, about 62 miles northeast of Te Araroa on the east coast.
New Zealand is on the boundary of the Australian and Pacific tectonic plates and experiences up to 15,000 tremors a year.
More follows...

Friends in Whakantane report nothing even falling off shelves when a baby one in Italy flattens a town & so told me to watch out more like, for myself Rolling Eyes 

Ps. Please excuse he poor humor.

All OK in the further north Auckland area guys. The quake was far enough out to sea not to have a direct result on anybody, I will be going down the beach later to see what our foot high tsunami has achieved. 

It was the calendar first day of Spring yesterday and absolutely glorious which makes you wonder if it was the calm before the event. We had a couple of pods of Orca whales around our area yesterday so maybe nature gave us two warnings. It is Father's Day here on Sunday and the kids are bringing  beer and pizza and the wife is threatening to do some baking later so we will get extra in just in case.

More chance of being mugged by Asylum seekers than flattened in a quake Suspect

The girls were not impressed when I told them to take their mother out for the day as my Father's Day gift.

Where has humour gone?
