More quakes in NZ - but according to NZ academic they have nothing to do with the Japan quake (sic)


Strong earthquakes rattle Canterbury, Hawke's Bay



22 November, 2016

A "severe" 5.7 magnitude aftershock has hit North Canterbury, following a 5.4 magnitude earthquake in Hawke's Bay earlier in the day.

The latest shake struck near Culverden at 6.13pm at a depth of 23km.

Thousands of people, from Dunedin to Auckland, reported on GeoNet they felt the earthquake.

Three minutes earlier, at 6.10pm, a "strong" magnitude 4.6 earthquake hit north-east of Cheviot.

This evening's aftershocks follow a magnitude 5.4 earthquake off the coast of Hawke's Bay at 1.20pm.

The earlier earthquake struck 70km south-east of Porangahau at a depth of 30km. GeoNet described it as "strong".

GNS scientist Kelvin Berryman told Checkpoint with John Campbell the earthquake felt in Hawke's Bay was likely to be connected to the magnitude 7.8 earthquake
