According to Geonet’s computer models another large shake on both sides of Cook Strait, New Zealand, is highly likely over the next week. The chance for an earthquake of magnitude 5.0 – 5.9 in next 24 hours is 30%, in next 7 days 76%, and in next 12 months more than 99%. Chance for an earthquake of magnitude 6.0 and above in next 24 hours is 3.5%, in next 7 days 14%, and in next 12 months 46%.

Seismologists warn people to be vigilant and expect another large shake. Since M6.6 on August 16 – August 19th, there had been 932 earthquakes with magnitudes ranging from 2.0 – 6.9, and a total of 2582 earthquakes with the same magnitude range since this sequence started on July 19, 2013 with M5.7 earthquake. This makes a total of 3514 earthquakes in 30 days.
