Last night’s magnitude 6.3 earthquake near the Kermadec Islands follows a 6.1 on November 18 and a 7.5 October 22, and others in the south Pacific: a 7.1 in Papua New Guinea the day before and regular 5+ quakes around Tonga to the north and on the South American coast. Here is the new quake’s record on Canterbury’s seismograph drums:

Kermadecs mag 6.3 quake, Canterbury seismograph drums - GNS 151211

Kermadecs mag 6.3 quake, Canterbury seismograph drums - GNS 151211

Thus, a watch is maintained for 17-12-11. GeoNet update:

Kermadecs mag 5.0 quake - GNS 171211

Sign of a developing local seismic event was very prominent on the Lake Taylor Station and Mount Oxford seismographs:
Canterbury seismograph drums - 171211

NZ recent quakes - GNS 151211

With moderate quakes distributed from one end to the other along the Pacific and Indo-Australian plate boundary bisecting it, New Zealand was clearly tensioning and about to give with a big fault-slip somewhere, Canterbury area being the weak and most active point for over a year – for secondary faults only so far..
