Default 5.5 in Taupo anyone feel it ?

I hid under my desk. The energy of the earthquake took four minutes to travel from Taupo to Feilding where I work. My husband felt it and he's in Wellington today.

Did anyone else drop, cover, hold ? No, thought not.

Is that anything to do with the 7 pointer felt back in June/July or whenever it was?

Sis in law who was working in town apparently did, but I was 10km NW of town, sat in the office, and never felt a thing!
Geonet say it's not related to any others.
