Upside Down Earthquake

Jim Courtney
I was just reading about the large earthquake near New Zealand's south island.

Here is hoping that Chris, his family and his goats are all doing OK!

All good here Jim, and thanks.  
Really powerful rolling motion, no jolt, rocking or shaking as normal that lasted a good couple of minutes enough to dim and flicker the lights, and make one hang on during.  It woke up all the animals and birds too, but then we had a full moon so they may have been disturbed anyway.  Geonet reported another strong one right afterwards but never felt that.

So glad to hear you are okay. Best batten down the hatches for a few days.

I was about 8 miles from the epicentre of the Loma Prieta quake in 1989.  It was like being on a boat on high seas.

Glad to hear you’re OK, Chris.

Cheers,
Jeff.

Nothing to report so far, Jim.
