We had an earthquake last night. Actually, there were three of them, but the first one hit while we were in the car, and the second after we were asleep.
The one we felt was a 4.5 centered just up the road and off shore in Orewa. Down in Albany, it felt like sitting on a sofa in a moving truck while somebody gives it a big shove. Then there were a few rattles following that.
