This morning there was an earthquake in my home town. No damage at home, but a couple of poorly balanced things on my book case at work fell to the floor. No damage has been reported anywhere from the quake but it was widely felt. Here are the details:

Local Time 7:56am, Date 21st Jan 2005.
5.5 on the Richter Scale centred 5km from Upper Hutt and 30km deep.

I live about 40km as the crow flies from Upper Hutt.
