    On Monday afternoon, four moderate earthquakes were recorded on Geonet's monitoring website and people throughout New Zealand reported feeling the shaking.

    But those four quakes never happened. They were what are known as "ghost quakes".

    Instead, one magnitude 6.9 quake had struck near the Kermadec Islands, north of New Zealand, at 4.19pm at a depth of about 130 kilometres.

    There is no tsunami threat to New Zealand following the 6.8M earthquake SOUTH OF THE KERMADEC ISLANDS at 4.19pm.
    Based on current information, the initial assessment is that the quake is unlikely to have caused a tsunami that will pose a threat to New Zealand

    Glad lad to hear NZ dodged that one! That would have been bad. Also, hope the islands it DID affect aren’t inhabited, and if they are that no one was hurt.
