    A 4.8 magnitude earthquake rocked the top of the South Island this morning



    It struck 15 kilometres east of Seddon with a depth of 12 kilometres - at around 20 past one.

    Geonet reports the shaking was strongly felt in Nelson, Blenheim and Wellington - all the way up to Palmerston North.

    Nearly two thousand people checked in to say they felt the quake.
