On Sunday, an earthquake of magnitude 7.4 struck 91 km i.e; 57 miles was recorded in the Northeast of Christchurch City (New Zealand) at 1102 GMT, reported by US Geological Survey. New Zealand common defense said tsunami was conceivable after the earthquake, and thus advised people living on the east coast to move to higher ground.
“The primary wave movement may not be the most significant,” it said, including “tsumanmi” activities would proceed for a few hours. Christchurch is the greatest city on New Zealand’s South Island. A 6.3 shudder there in February 2011 executed 185 individuals and brought on boundless harm. The Christchurch Civil Defense Emergency Management said in a Facebook post, “We are right now assembling situational mindfulness and will share data as it comes in.
At this stage, there have been no critical reports of harm over the city. Expect post-quake tremors and take care of everyone around you.” The New Zealand government’s GeoNet site said the shudder was “felt generally” all through the nation and cautioned subjects to keep an eye out for post-quake tremors. Tamsin Edensor, a mother of two in Christchurch, said the shaking kept going a “long” time.
