Two Minor Shakes: Will there be More???

This is a little project Mrs Tele'a gave the extension class. It was to see if we could self manage it.

Sunday the 17th of March, a minor earthquake, (or two), hit parts of Auckland. It was all over the net in minutes. When it hit us at home, my mum ran straight under the doorways for cover. luckily it was only for about 3 seconds. Now our family is prepared properly for another.

 The earthquake was created by Rangitoto and Motutapu rubbing together. The magnitude was 3.1 for the first one and the second one was 3.9. This is no joke. First Christchurch now us. Better be ready.
