Auckland (1059.4 km SW of epicenter) [Map] / Moderate shaking (MMI V) : I was woken up when my bed was swaying for a few seconds. It was 02:29 at night in Auckland, Friday 05-3-2021. I knew immediately that it was an earth quake somewhere and it must have been Kermadec. Got emergency message from NZ Gvmt around 11:30 warning about magnitude 8 quake in Kermadec and potential Tsunami. I was surprised the warning was issued so long after the actual event ! | 4 users found this interesting.  
Three Kings Auckland Central / not felt : But we were told it was felt by childs friend in Kohimaramara suburb (towards beach) with intensity apparently just a tremor. Estimate that is about 12 kilometers distance.
