New Zealand has been rocked by an earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 6.1 to 6.3.

The quake hit the nation’s North Island on Tuesday morning, centred off the coast almost 140km from Palmerston North at a depth of 37km.

The rumble comes less than a week after a powerful tremor centred in the upper South Island rocked the country and killed two people.

According to Geoscience Australia, it is estimated the earthquake could have been felt by people up to 507km away, and could have caused damage up to 40km away.
