Earthquake Report comment :
The aftershock had a Magnitude of 5.2 following USGS and 5.0 following GNS Science.
Epicenter was at 30 km east of Darfield and near the original epicenter of the massive 7.1 earthquake who struck the area at September 4. Since that data many hunderds of aftershocks have rattled the greater Christchurch area (more than 1,000 if we count also the very small ones).
Very near the Akaroa peninsula.
Today’s aftershock was among the most powerful so far.
1640 people reported so far that they had felt the earthquake.
Most of them experienced a Modified Marcalli of IV (moderate shaking).
166 experienced a strong shaking (Mercalli V).
Today’s aftershock was the strongest since 4 weeks. These aftershocks can go on for many more months. So far, no damage or injuries have been reported.

Most important Earthquake Data:
Magnitude : 5.2 USGS
Monday, October 04, 2010 at 10:21:50 PM (22:21) at epicenter

Christchurch Earthquake : the impressive list of 265 aftershocks

Seismograph cutout of aftershocks on September 12

Geonet, the website offering the GNS Science earthquake information has produced a list with all aftershocks in the Canterbury region since the massive earthquake on the night of September 4 in Darfield.
Every link in the list will bring you to the detailed report of the specific quake.
We have ranked the list by Magnitude NOT by date and hour.
The list goes from September 4, 4:35 AM until September 17, 3 AM

The bad news : 266 earthquakes in total (including the first M 7.1)
The good news : Since the major shocks of M 7.1 and M 7.4, the maximum value was 5.4 (very powerful but with minimal additional damage or injuries).
More good news : a lot of buildings have since been stabilized with less chance to collapse if a more powerful aftershock would strike.

Important : if you do feel an aftershock, check our ‘live’ seismograph page or check it at the Geonetwebsite

Christchurch earthquake : internationally forgottten, but still shaking constantly

Although the current aftershocks are not mentioned anymore in the USGS and EMSC charts, the inhabitants of Christchurch are still living under the constant threat of a major aftershock and are experiencing many moderate earthquakes every couple of hours.
People who want to see the strength of the quakes can consult them here.
An even more better view can be seen in our dynamic seismograph mapping by the GNS Science, the New Zealand Authority who is following carefully all tectonic activity.
The Magnitude aspect can reveal how powerful an earthquake is, but every earthquake will be felt differently.
The duration of the shaking and a number of additional factors are as important as the Magnitude. The map hereunder is showing very well that 2 aftershocks are lasting a lot longer than all others.
The most powerful aftershocks are mostly located in the Darfield area.

This earthquake list covers minor and major earthquakes in the world.
If a more detailed page is present, the earthquake line will be linked to the detailed page.
For your comfort, we will provide in most cases Google Satellite Map links to give you an idea where the earthquake struck, which terrain it happened and if villages or cities are located in the immediate vicinity. The reference for the time zone is UTC (Coordinated Universal Time, also called GMT)
The page is regularly updated to add new earthquakes.
green color = NOT dangerous for damage or injuries
orange color = MODERATE risk for damage or injuries
red color = CONSIDERABLE risk for damage or injuries
