I’m in jakarta and the first i knew of it was reading the herald website! However thinking back i do remember a jolt and wondering what it was. But there was no swaying sensation like we are used to in NZ so i dismissed it at the time.

The dogs were going crazy outside between 10:30 and 11pm tonight, could the earthquake have anything to do with it?

Felt it here in Christchurch. Felt as a small “jolt”. Both dog and I jumped. Other friends on fb are saying the same…
