About 9:00 pm on July 15th, I was laying in bed watching one of the best documentary’s on climate change “HOME” (you can watch it in really good quality video as a full feature on youtube, or download it, or go find the DVD) (Think planet earth but with a climate change message) I was laying in my bed, when the entire room started to move like it was floating in a semi choppy lake.
The rolling, soft waves of motion lasted for about 20 seconds. Its wasn’t violent shaking so its wasn’t too scary.
Come to find out that there was a 7.4 in magnitude earth quake about 300 miles from Queenstown in the ocean south west of the south island.
This was my 3 experience with an earthquake, and deffienetly the longest one.
