Rocking and Rolling here
Thirty minutes ago we had a fairly long, rocking and rolling earthquake. We are told by GeoNet it was a magnitude 6.1 on the Richter scale at a depth of 48 km and 50 km northwest of Paraparaumu. Paraparaumu is where my son lives and where I dogs Daisydog.
It was felt far afield apparently but not, we hope in those areas trying to deal with the devastation caused by Cyclone Gabrielle.
Because of the cyclone, a National State of Emergency has been declared for only the third time in New Zealand’s history.
So more bad news from our little corner of the world. Would somebody please find Mother Nature’s meds and check that she takes them
