NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 21/06/2016

A magnitude 4.4 earthquake has given Wellington residents a jolt.

The 23-kilometre deep quake struck in the Cook Strait just after 9pm on Tuesday and was centred around 20km south of the capital, Geonet said.

Large numbers of residents reported feeling the moderate strength tremor as far as Levin but the Fire Service said there were no reports of damage.
