So what’s up?

A good way to keep aware – of anything these day – is Facebook. There you can read how last night I gave warning that today’s magnitude 5.5 and 3.9 quakes were on the way. To find out more, friend facebook.com/rik.tindall.

Looking forward to seeing you there 🙂

The North Island has risks even bigger than the South.

Kia kaha. Kia toa. Kia manawanui. Kia ora.
