Abstract

On 13 May 1990, an earthquake of magnitude 6.7 occurred near Dannevirke and caused damage both there and in the surrounding area.

This report presents the observations of a two person reconnaissance team from the New Zealand National Society for Earthquake Engineering together with details provided by the Engineering Seismology Section of the Institute of Geological and Nuclear Sciences (formerly part of the DSIR).
