You keep asking: does Dunedin get earthquakes?

YES, DUNEDIN EXPERIENCES EARTHQUAKES

Christchurch’s “seismic hazard” was “about double” Dunedin’s, but should a major quake occur here the impact would be similar, but of a different nature.

Many of the search engine terms we are receiving at What if? Dunedin… are concerned with Dunedin’s proneness to earthquakes.

We suggest you refer to this Seismicity Map (ten years of ‘shallow’ seismicity) at http://www.geonet.org.nz/earthquake/quakes/3532078g-maps.html

The map tells us why it might be good to live in Dunedin, Auckland, or north of Auckland.

Earlier this year, in the public interest, we took the liberty (thanks to Paul Le Comte) to ‘re-image’ a map published by the Otago Daily Times, which shows the (known) fault lines of Otago. View the following post:
