NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 11/06/2016

Some residents in the middle of the country have been given an early-morning jolt by a magnitude 4.5 earthquake.

The 36km-deep quake was felt at around 4am on Sunday and was centred 10km east of Seddon, in Marlborough.

About 160 people from Wellington and the top of the South Island reported feeling the moderate-strength shaking, Geonet said.
