Early morning Bay of Plenty quake

  • 12/05/2016

There's been more earthquake activity following on from Christchurch's 4.7 magnitude quake last night.

Early this morning a 4.4 magnitude tremor shook the eastern Bay of Plenty, centred near Murupara but very deep.

On Twitter, people reported feeling it in Taupo and Wellington.

The quake in Christchurch last night was much shallower and more significant, with several thousand people reporting on the GeoNet site that they felt it.
