In the wake of Tuesday night’s M7 earthquake off the Opunake coast, Taranaki people are being urged to sign up for New Zealand ShakeOut, billed as the country’s biggest-ever earthquake drill.
MCDEM letterhead Media Release, 4 July 2012 New website provides all regions’ earthquake hazard information Last night’s earthquake off the coast of Taranaki showed all of New Zealand is prone to earthquakes.


For the first time one website now provides a way to easily access information about regional earthquake hazards across New Zealand. In fact, the centre of many of New Zealand’s earthquakes is offshore, and structures that sit on the seabed need to be engineered to withstand intense shaking. A powerful 7.0-magnitude earthquake hit 30km west of the southern city of Christchurch, causing widespread damage, with two reports of serious injuries. This map shows the earthquakes that occurred between 1990 and 1994 off the New Zealand coast.
