So what did that Murphy fella serve up this afternoon:
A 4.3 magnitude earthquake struck the Whanganui region this afternoon.
The quake at 12.50pm was centred 60km south of Patea at a depth of 100km.
GNS Science said it was possibly felt as far away as Wellington.
You wouldn't read about it, not that we felt a thing! Nerves are further frayed ...
