No need to Panic....well not unless a Positive Tsunami warning issues anyways.

Anyways back in New Zealand When was the last time that anyone was reported killed by an Earthquake in New Zealand? Yes I think you get the point there are Earthquakes on a daily basis many not felt every week theres up to a dozen felt ones and even some biggies but in New Zealand the risk of being killed is low.

You got more chance of being struck by lightning, run over by a car or even killed in a plane crash than be killed or injured in an Earthquake. Does not mean to say you should not be prepared for one though.
