NZHerald Jul 5 2011 A 6.5 magnitude earthquake has been widely felt through both North and South Islands this afternoon.
The quake struck at a depth of 150km, 30km west of Taupo at 3:36pm, Geonet reported.
It was reportedly felt in Wellington, Hawkes Bay, Blenheim, Nelson and Christchurch.
Geonet data centre spokeswoman Jennifer Coppola said the quake was the largest to strike near Taupo for a decade.

We did not feel the ground shaking in Whangarei. Activist and friend Evelien Gilbert, who has the excellent blog Aotearoaawiderperspective.wordpress.com, and who lives near Raglan, did experience the quake. She writes: “I was sitting on my bed around 3:40 pm and my whole house began to shake, bed shaking sideways (I was sitting on it) and plates shaking like mad on the shelves. After 3-4 seconds and it was over. 10 minutes I get an email from eqnews and there had been a 6.5 m quake 30 km west of Taupo.”
Evelien says she believes HAARP may well be behind the earthquake activity in New Zealand this year.
The aerosol material (chemtrails) is used with HAARP. Barium, an ingredient common to chemtrails, is mentioned on the HAARP patent.
