UPDATE: Aftershock sees evacuation

11am Update

Another jolt this time measuring 4.3 on the richter scale has rumbled through the Christchurch region inside the last 30 minutes.

It was centred just off Port Levy adding further concern for hillside residents. It was almost immediately followed by a 3.8 tremor in a similar location

Earlier story

A 4.1 aftershock has rattled Christchurch this morning and caused the evacuation of Clifton Hill and Redcliffs because of worries due to cracks appearing in rocks and boulders above them.

Police haven’t confirmed the number of properties affected and earlier this morning police closed the main road into Sumner to assess the stability of rocks in the suburb.

The weather in Christchurch today is dry with high cloud and temperatures are expected to be in the low 20s.

I noted you made a tentative comment yesterday regarding the potential for a deep low in the Tasman Sea in about 10 days – according to a model you follow. I have become a fan of ECMWF’s models after you brought them to my attention. They are showing continuing highs in the Tasman for the next 10 days.

What model were you referring to and apologies for not being able to find your earlier comment.
