earthquakeA 5.2 magnitude earthquake had hit New Zealand’s North Island and the tremors were felt across Masterton and Wellington.

 

 

At around 7.55am Thursday, the quake struck the northwest of Wellington and about 10 kilometres west of Masterton. These early morning quake were reported to be felt strongly in Porirua, Lower Hutt, Upper Hutt and Kapiti apart from Wellington and was struck at about 35 kilometres deep.

 

 

A 4.7-magnitude earthquake had struck the Christchurch area on Wednesday night, around 10 kilometres southeast of Christchurch, at a depth of seven kilometres.

 

 

A 5.7-magnitude quake rattled Christchurch this year in February when a cliff was collapsed into the sea near Taylors Mistake.

 

 

The damaging quake came just a day after Prime Minister John Key visited the city he grew up in to highlight rejuvenation from the devastating quakes five years ago. He said the buildings in the city are way stronger than they were five years ago and which is why they can by all account stand the quake well.
