This morning we generated a test earthquake to support practise drills across New Zealand for ShakeOut 2022. The test event was triggered with shaking intensity equivalent to an MMI 7, "severe" shaking. Shaking levels experienced in recent damaging earthquakes. Those using the Sentinel App received notification at 09:30am of this test, and we populated two demonstration buildings with the shaking data.
The demonstration building data presented compares a measurement of the shaking with either an earthquake prone building or an earthquake resilient building.
