New Zealand: there is an earthquake but premier continues interview – World


“We are having a bit of an earthquake here, a fairly noticeable shock.” The New Zealand premier Jacinda Ardern did not upset when, during an interview with the morning program Am Show, she was interrupted by a 5.6 magnitude earthquake. “I’m fine, I’m not under any chandelier,” he even joked once the earth stopped shaking.

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.
