Earthquake in Wellington

I haven't moved that fast in a while. What felt like a reasonably strong earthquake struck around 7:15am while I was having a bath! The imperative to get some clothes on outdid my tendency to freeze when the earth moves. Geonet is reporting it as severe though I can't see any media reports. But who's working at this time?

12.29 and the ground is still shaking.

Pretty clear this is a string if earthquakes moving up towards Wellington. It's always been a matter of when not if.

surely it's past time to give up on Wellington, move the core government functions to Auckland - and take the opportunity this presents for a great downsizing and contracting if the "whole of government" as the Wellingtonians love to say.
