Damage from Greymouth to Hokitika
Greymouth is approximately 100 km from the epicentre and Hokitika approximately 130 km. The intensity of damage changed significantly over this distance, there being considerable damage at Greymouth but only slight damage at Hokitika. Some Hokitika commercial buildings of construction similar to buildings which suffered moderate damage in Greymouth had virtually no damage at all.
