Uuntitled[edit]

The claims of casualties, etc. ought to be verified with newspaper citations or the like. Iproteus 08:17, 12 October 2006 (UTC)


Given that Matata is only about 12km from Edgecumbe, the distance and direction of the epicentre from Matata as stated seems off.

Most Damaging Quake ??[edit]

This page currenly says:

"The earthquake was the most damaging New Zealand has experienced in recent decades, with approximately 50% of the houses in Edgecumbe being damaged by the quake. "

This statement may need to be revised after the damage estimates of the 2010 Canterbury earthquake are finalised. 220.101 talk\Contribs 11:26, 5 September 2010 (UTC)

I've weakened it to say "one of the most damaging". --Avenue (talk) 12:21, 5 September 2010 (UTC)
