Friday Morning at Eden Park Bed and Breakfast in Auckland. Breakfast for the guests is finished and just waithing for check-outs and then into the room turnovers. So… Its coffee time and a quick update on the news of the day. I see that the West Coast of New Zealand got a shaky start to their morning today when a magnitude 5.3 earthquake rocked the West Coast and Otago this morning. The quake struck at 7.38am, and was centred 40km southwest of Haast, 70km northwest of Wanaka, at a depth of 5km.
The quake was reported to have been felt in Wanaka, Alexandra, and Lake Hawea, and as far away as Westport and Dunedin.
Woopie doo…. Great way to start a Friday!
