    Another quake rattles central New Zealand

    A magnitude 4.9 quake has rattled central parts of the country in the early hours.

    A magnitude 4.9 quake has rattled central New Zealand in the early hours of Friday.

    The quake, centred 25km south-east of Seddon at a depth of 22km, struck just before 1am.

    GeoNet classified the quake's intensity as strong and it was felt in Wellington, Marlborough and on the Kapiti Coast.

    A moderate magnitude 4.5 quake hit the area just after 6.30am.

    Hundreds of aftershocks have rolled in since a 6.5 magnitude earthquake hit the Cook Strait on July 21, damaging Wellington buildings and leaving about 25 people with minor injuries.

    There have been more than 2000 tremors since the earthquakes started on July 19.
