6.5 - thankfully no casualties!

Yesterday, at 5:09pm local time (1:09am EDT), a very powerful 6.5 magnitude earthquake struck close by Wellington, New Zealand. Though its epicenter was in the middle of Cook Strait, it did not cause a tsunami, and as far as we know, there have not been any casualties so far. Since then, there have been several, smaller earthquakes, but thankfully very few injuries have been reported. At this point, we are unsure if this has impacted production, but it seems as if it things are still on schedule. If you would like to learn more about the situation, go to either Stuff or Radio New Zealand
