    It may have been felt in Balclutha, Gore, Invercargill, Lumsden, Roxburgh, Te Anau and Tuatapere.

    Thank you for that as I wouldn't have known about it because the BBC radio news only had time to cover the Mexico City earthquake.
    I think a death toll makes a difference, the more deaths the more money the BBC can extract in charitable donations.
