5.0 Richters Strikes New Zealand!!! Yet Another Few Small Earthquakes Show Up On Seismograph At Mount Saint Helens Volcano!!!

This big New Zealand Earthquake upon looking at the map does not appear to be immediatley near that volcano that was having all the trouble last week, but I will need to check the New Zealand site to find the complete felt report since USGS does not get all the reports there:

5.0 - 19km SSW of Murupara, New Zealand

2016-05-11 08:44am Central Time

Nearby Places
11 Miles SSW of Murupara, New Zealand
28 Miles E of Taupo, New Zealand
38 Miles SSE of Rotorua, New Zealand
47 Miles SE of Tokoroa, New Zealand
206 Miles NNE of Wellington, New Zealand

And upon checking prior to press time, found all of the following earthquakes there in addition to just the one above! And YES, many felt reports from that one as well as one other one listed as a 5.2 on their list, however I don't see one matching that size here. . . and the numbers were a thousand felt reports from the above listed one and two thousand from possibly the one on the top of the following list that might have been much nearer a populated area, however these are all still not real large earthquakes I hope everybody understands:

4.8 6km W of Masterton, New Zealand 2016-05-11 14:55:17
4.5 13km W of Masterton, New Zealand 2016-05-11 14:15:32

4.4 23km ESE of Christchurch, New Zealand 2016-05-11 03:45:53

This one was felt in San Diego however several miles south of there as you can see by the distance to Ensenada and Phoenix:

4.4 - 36km ENE of Colonia Vicente Guerrero, Mexico

2016-05-11 04:03am Central Time
