The earth moved

The piano started creaking, there was a rumble and the lights began to swing.

My first thought was Christchurch, but Geonet tells me the earthquake was 30 kilometres west of Wanaka and it was severe:

    Rolling shake here west of Timaru. Hanging items swung a bit.

    Invercargill swayed a bit – for at least 30 seconds. I felt motion sickness for a short time.

    My car jiggled and wobbled in Dunedin city. Heard a noise but people walking on the street didn’t seem too worried.
