I felt it in my motorhome - like someone rocked it, just once though. I'm in Elsdon camp in Porirua. Perhaps my suspension is a little more sensitive than your house

We felt it here in Whakatane. We had things falling off the shelves. Didn't like that one at all. We live on top of a hill and we thought the house was going slide off it.

I have no clue... It's not like I've never felt an earthquake before either. Dead weird! I've texted hubby to ask if he felt it (he's over in Whitby with a mate tonight) but so far no response.
