Earthquake update

Filed under: news,On this day — by my3boysandi @ 4:59 am

thanks my supportive friends for your comments last night

Although it was bad here and I hated it!!!! We are some 3 hours away from Gisbourne and apparently it was offshore (or it would have been worse arrrrrrrrr)

Today my thoughts and prayers are with the people of Gisbourne

Here is what they went through

Quake hits East Coast

6.8 earthquake hits Gisborne

Massive quake causes Gisborne chaos

Quake Hotline

So really Im ok 🙂

I dont know if I could have coped with the 1931 earthquake here in the Bay.  Last nights one was only 1 point less than the 1931 one.



  1. wow yes I read it on the news this morning, pretty scary stuff eh?

  3. It was really scary at the time as you just didn’t know how big it was going to be- it seemed to go on forever. Jen

  4. Heard about the quake in the news over here. Glad you are ok. Haven’t experienced a quake before, not even a slight tremor but I can imagine the fear all round.

  5. Hey there Lady! Earthquakes can be quite frightening! I’ve actually been through four of them — three while I lived in the Philippines, and one in the Pacific Northwest near Seattle. Have you had any aftershocks?

  7. Glad you’re okay, Jen. Like you, I live with the sleeping giant of the New Madrid fault zone here in Northeast Arkansas.
