    Residents on the North Island's east coast should expect aftershocks to continue following yesterdays 7.2 earthquake



    There have been a number aftershocks today, including a 6.1 magnitude quake 140km east of Te Araroa at 1.16 this afternoon, at a depth of 33 kilometres.

    GNS seismologist Dr Matt Gerstenberger says the shakes are normal.
