Moderate aftershock under Rolleston, Christchurch, NZ

Christchurch from the top of the Gondola

Epicenter 2 km from Rolleston (data source : Geonet New Zealand) and 20 km west of Christchurch.
Our danger color of Orange has been set because of the fact that some properties have not been completely repaired after the recent massive earthquake.
Geonet received 419 "felt" notifications.  9 indicated a MMI 6 scale  and 51 MMI.
This is only 1 shock we have described in our pages the last few weeks, but we have to mention that since the massive earthquake people are continuously remembered at the earthquake by small aftershocks ranging from 2.5 to 3.9.
We have however the impression that the strength of the aftershocks is decreasing.
