Originally reported as 6.6 - M7.8 quake felt ALL OVER NZ. Geonet later had to UPGRADE the magnitude because it was felt country wide and NO ONE believed them (again)
Here's what GeoNet said about upgrading the magnitude to 7.5:
The magnitude 7.5 earthquake was 15 kilometres deep. The highest level of impact from our felt reports so far has been MMI8 (severe) this level of shaking includes people experiencing difficulty standing. Furniture and appliances shifting. Substantial damage to fragile or unsecured objects and a few weak buildings may be damaged. This level of shaking was reported via the GeoNet felt reports in the upper South Island and lower North Island. The initial earthquake was felt widely throughout New Zealand.
