Wellington has been rattled by a magnitude 4.7 earthquake this morning.
Initial recording by Geonet put the quake at 4.2 and a depth of 28km, 25km west of Paraparaumu on the Kāpiti Coast at 8.13am.
However, that was revised to 4.7 soon after.
"A morning shake for some today with a M4.7 earthquake offshore of Paraparaumu. It was felt in the lower North Island and northern South Island," Geonet said in a tweet.
Geonet has received more than 12,000 "felt" reports about the quake.
A police spokeswoman said there were no reports at this stage of any damage relating to the quake.
