Last night while we were watching a recorded episode of From the Earth to the Moon the earth moved. Naturally I made some daft comment about the special effects on this show being pretty good before we realised, actually, this was a doozie of an earthquake and the lights were swinging and the doors were swinging and things banging around and it went on and on and on.
I then thought, oh, if it's this bad here, it must be really bad elsewhere. I was right, and luckily for NZ elsewhere happened to be in the remotest, least populated part of the country, so the 7.8 on the Richter Scale quake which hit at Dusky Sound has done very little damage. We're a lucky country.
Here's what it looked like from GeoNet at the closest drum to Dunedin.
I can do without that kind of Rock n Roll, thanks.
