OT:Earthquakes in NZ

Postby j j » Sun Jul 21, 2013 5:27 am

Wow just had a severe earthquake a few minutes ago - 6.8 on the scale , whole house was moving lights swinging, missus screaming :lol: 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 :lol: best place to be when it's a biggy!!!

we not known as the "shakey isles" for nothing :D

Yes, but is your vinyl collection safe? You've got to look to what is most important at times like this! 8)
