Have experienced a number of earthquakes since moving to NZ. Biggest one was a 5.6, enough to make me stagger as I was walking around in the shop. bit like a strong horizontal slide one way, then the other - different from the smaller quakes which seem to have an up-and-down movement. A lot of bottles rattles (I work in a pharmacy), but nothing fell down.
I would *not* like to experience anything bigger than this!
Neither, living as a I do in a wooden house built on a sand dune a scant 20 metres above mean sea-level, am I interested in seeing a tsunami at first hand, thank you very much!
