The earthquake occurred at 8 local time, 9 pm yesterday, at a depth of 52 kilometers near Levin, 90 kilometers north of Wellington, where the shock was felt strongly. There were no injuries or damage and no tsunami warnings were issued. At the time of the shock Ardern was located in the Parliament building, the Beehive Building, which was built according to anti-seismic criteria. “The Beehive moves more than other buildings,” Ardern reassured smilingly, continuing as if nothing had happened with the interview.
