Brightwater (New Zealand) (96 km NW from epicenter)(no details): Yes, as the house is built on a solid concrete foundation, i noticed the structure bolt in its movement and loud movement, with high floor to ceiling windows it felt as the house was moving or structure in two different directions untill settled, hencing cracks in the solid flooring foundation. if the earthquake was centre at a depth of 10k i believe this house would fold like a pack of cards, merely on the foundation.
