The earth doth move

Had a wee earthquake last night in Wellington, nothing too serious and certainly not big enough to move the house off its foundations.

The GeoNet report says it was a shallow magnitude 5.0 quake just north of Cook Strait. I’m just hoping the theory that ‘lots of little quakes ease the pressure and reduce the chance of a big one’ is correct! Time will tell I suppose…
