Why don’t these last two images correspond as they should, sharing a large period as they do? – Is GeoNet data being doctored for a disinformation effect? See mickey mouse NZ government geology death tolls post. One explanation could stem from the rate at which the GNS seismograph network units are currently shutting down and going out of service (being changed) – especially the volcano-based ones – due to sudden excess wear and tear? … NOTE Prominent record here at Inchbonnie / North Canterbury this time, of the South of Fiji magnitude 5.2 deep quake, around the 3-hour mark, travelling down the Hikurangi Trough – detail follows next.

N.B. This big subterranean movement affecting NZ was the Magnitude: 5.2; Tuesday July 19 2011, 07:15:54 UTC; Region: south of the Fiji Islands; Depth: 552.2 km it seems – nothing noted on GeoNet [1. See Urewera and Wanaka trace below]. I felt two of the smaller, consequent shakes, as these were near Cashmere: Magnitude 2.8, Tuesday, July 19 2011 at 7:59 am (NZST), 10 km south-west of Christchurch and Magnitude 3.2, Tuesday, July 19 2011 at 10:20 pm (NZST), 10 km south-west of Christchurch

If you want to keep yourself safe, you need to CHANGE THIS GOVERNMENT OF white-collar and neo-feudal CRIMINALS. Your well-being is not their concern, their personal profit is. The 20th-century, social-democratic electoral choice we have inherited is one of degree – how much, and with what proportion of legal principle, will a particular political set get to pursue their private ambition. You lose, either way – as the democratic choice currently stands. We need to greatly improve the political choice, towards egalitarian equity and environmental stability.

20 July 2011
Forecast: given quake.crowe.co.nz/QuakeEnergy current low state, against recent high activity, says ‘a magnitude 4-5 minimum quake soon, guaranteed’. You may quote that. Risk to wider NZ? – An overdue large (6-7) event.
