Wow just had a severe earthquake a few minutes ago - 6.8 on the scale , whole house was moving lights swinging, missus screaming
certainly got the heart beating faster, centred at top of the Sth Island.
5.8 this morning which woke me up about 7am
Had another big one around 9 am on Friday 5.6 - had me running out of my workmates garage , he was stuck on the toilet
best place to be when it's a biggy!!!
