Don't panic! say experts

CD Don't panic! say experts

"A major earthquake in Rotorua is very likely - but probably not today.

Some Rotorua residents were alarmed yesterday after the Daily Post reported comments from geologists that a major New Zealand earthquake was overdue.

At a Natural Hazards Management Conference in Christchurch this week, geology experts Tim Davies and Mauri McSaveney said an alpine fault earthquake was overdue and would result in the East Cape ripping away from New Zealand, destroying the plateau on which Rotorua was based and taking Taupo and Whakatane with it."
