A Shaky Weekend

The southern coast shook this past weekend with a 4.6 magnitude earthquake. This graphic from GeoNet shows the location of the quake (red star) and also the whereabouts of those who reported that they felt it. The earthquake occurred, Saturday, 1 June, at 7:24am.

These little quakes always prompt me to check how prepared I really am for an earthquake or natural disaster. Here are EQ-IQ's instructions on how to quake safe your home. They also have a guide to emergency survival.
