6.5 magnitude quake shook Wellington on Sunday

Wellington went panic-buying when a 6.5 magnitude quake shook the lower North island on Sunday. People scrambled for cover and safety in the supermarkets even after the tremor.
The earthquake took place at 5:09 PM on Sunday, resulting from what is suspected out of a set of ground shakings since Thursday.

Wellington city was cordoned by authorities to prevent possible post-incidences.

According to GNS Science seismologist Stephen Bannister, the quake was deeper in impact compared to what occurred on February 22, 2010.

As part of the contingency measures of Wellington, motorists were advised to minimize trip going to the central business districts, while buildings are being checked for potential dangers. (Photo: Maarten Holl/Fairfax NZ)
