Just felt the biggest earthquake since the one in '03 when bits of Secretary Island got knocked into the sea, and Geo Net is down and I can't file an earthquake report. Oh well.
For the record:
Time felt: 9.22 pm Wednesday 15th July.
Duration: About 1½ - 2 minutes.
What it was: A fairly gentle but deep rolling, shaking sort of movement. After the 2 minutes of the actual quake there was a lot of settling and slight motion for another 3 - 5 minutes.
Damage here: None.
Movement: Light fittings, loose items, no falls from bookshelves or anything like that.
Now to see if Geo Net is up yet...
Edited to add: Well, the earthquake has got its own web page here, so that's a start...
Further edit: This one actually felt quite a bit different to the `03 quake. That one started off feeling like I was living next to a railway line and there was a goods train going past. This one felt more like being on a boat of some description. More rolling, less juddering.
