The rash of quakes 1500km north of New Zealand in the past 24 hours is an example of "heightened activity" but does not mean a large tremor is coming, GeoNet says.
New research shows the Kaikōura quake sparked massive slow slip events up to 600km away. What are they and why do they matter?
There is a 15 percent likelihood of a magnitude 6.0 or higher earthquake striking New Zealand in the next month, GeoNet's latest earthquake forecast says.
Monitoring service GeoNet has received a $3 million funding boost after last month's 7.8 magnitude earthquake.
GeoNet's call for extra funding so it can be staffed around the clock was an 'unreasonable criticism', according to the acting Civil Defence Minister.
The government will consider funding GeoNet for 24/7 staffing to make vital decisions about tsunami threats. Audio
