Earthquake in Wellington

There's been a strong earthquake centred in Cook Strait which has shaken Wellington pretty badly and done some damage. A cluster of quakes have hit in the last few days but this one is the strongest so far. A bit of a worry after Christchurch.

Wellington is a lovely and very liveable city. When I lived there though I experienced quite a few quakes, and that was the main reason I decided to come to Auckland when I got back from overseas. Let's just hope the dormant volcano field doesn't fire up.
