Paekākāriki / Light shaking (MMI IV) / rattling, vibrating / 5-10 s : Well, I'm so used to earthquakes, so when we have very tiny ones I just think it's my imagination. But this one clearly moved/vibration of water in my water-bottle and my mirror moved against the wall a bit. My worst fear would be a tidal wave since I live on a hill with a good view of the ocean and can see on a regular night waves crashing against the seawall here in peakakariki. | 3 users found this interesting.
