Christchurch NZ magnitude 6.0

Christchurch NZ earthquake 13th June 2011 Latest news following the last rather large teeth rattler in Kiwi land is that no one has been hurt and disruption is minimal. There’s a twitter feed here for those worried about road, rail and airport disruption. There’s also been a lot of 3+ magnitude stuff going on.

Screengrab as usual from the excellent Christchurch Earthquake map.

Update: Still a lot of 3+ magnitude, but today three broke the 4.0 mark and there was a 5 magnitude, all these larger shocks recorded around the Port Levy / Pigeon bay area.
