6.4 Earthquake in Bay of Plenty.
A reply from an email I sent to someone on the Eastern Bay of Plenty coast: I guess it was too deep to cause any major concerns, but it looks rather impressive on the seismograph though doesn't it:Large earthquakes give no warnings - at least none that anyone has yet worked out.
