"I felt it" reports:
Whangarei (433.7 km W from epicenter) [Map] / not felt: Over 6.0 200km deep is unlikely to be felt u less directly under landmass, 230km deep and 200km from shore is 300km actual distance and softened by the water above the epicenter. Depth to magnitude ratio are the most critical for surface detection.
Auckland / MMI III (Weak shaking): earthquakes in this location are in the kermedec trench out to sea from NZ, a few people report felt report to our local geonet site.
Warkworth, Auckland / not felt: That all depends on the distance and depth.
TW, Lantz, NS Csnada / not felt: I have been following this site for some time now and I am just wondering how strong does an earthquake have to be to get a rise out of the People of New Zealand. Cause a 5.9 Didn't seem to garner much interest report wise.
