The 5.1 magnitude quake was 167 km deep, centred 25 km south-east of Tokoroa, GNS said.

It struck at about 6.48am and has been felt in Hawke’s Bay, Manawatu-Wanganui, Wellington and in the top of the South Island.

GNS seismologist John Ristau said the depth of the quake was probably the reason it was felt so widely.
