7.5R South island New Zealand! <-----As Predicted!

A huge 7.9R came in today in South Island New Zealand this morning at 11:02GMT. We warned about it coming and expected it from yesterday.  Of course the New Zealand Calendar was posted from 1st November. Furthermore, in this post (see here) we have also warned of very strong earthquakes to come in a few days. So we have covered this and we were expecting strong shakes to come.

A tsunami has hit after an earthquake struck New Zealand's South Island.
The US Geological Survey said the magnitude-7.8 quake hit just after midnight (11:02 GMT on Sunday), some 95km (59 miles) from Christchurch.
The tsunami arrived in the north-eastern coast about two hours later. Officials said the first waves may not be the largest, with tsunami activity possible for several hours.
Residents were warned to head inland or for higher ground along the coast.
A gauge at Kaikoura, 181 km (112 miles) north of Christchurch, measured a wave of two metres (6ft 5ins), according to
Smaller waves are said to be arriving in Wellington and other areas, the website said.
Residents in the Chatham Islands, an archipelago 423 miles (680km) south-east of the mainland, were also being warned a wave would hit imminently by the civil defence.
New Zealand lies on the notorious Ring of Fire, the line of frequent quakes and volcanic eruptions that circles virtually the entire Pacific rim.
Christchurch is still recovering from the 2011 earthquake that killed 185 people and destroyed the city centre.

  1. This was originally reported 7.9R that is why we have two numbers we try to update but there is no need now to be overly picky
