Quake Jolts Wellington
A magnitude 5.5 earthquake was felt widely in the Wellington region just before 8am today, Geological and Nuclear
Sciences (GNS) said.
The quake occurred at 7.56am and was centred 30km deep within 5km of Upper Hutt. There have been no immediate reports of
damage. A swarm of non-damaging small quakes, centered in the same location, occurred last year.
