We just had a shake...

Upper Hutt has just had an earth-shake.

Crazy that it is, I'd said to my work colleague this morning "its earthquake weather". Has been really muggy in Wellington today, grey skies and that odd feel about the day!

Reference Number: 3409613/G
Universal Time: November 19 2010 at 7:31
NZ Daylight Time: Friday, November 19 2010 at 8:31 pm
Latitude, Longitude
41.09°S, 175.10°E
Focal Depth: 30 km
Richter magnitude: 4.2
Region: Wellington
Within 5 km of Upper Hutt
20 km west of Featherston
20 km south-east of Paraparaumu
40 km north-east of Wellington

Hopefully that is all for us tonight. Reminds you what it must be like for our Christchurch friends and families who are still having to cope with daily earth-shakes.

I have only felt one here in Toronto. Very minor. I would not want it to happen too often. I hope there aren't any more where you are.
