New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern gave a live interview to a TV channel on Monday morning when they felt the tremors of a sudden earthquake but she continued the interview.
Ardern interrupts interviewer Ryan Bridges to explain what is happening in the Parliament complex in the capital Wellington. Ardern said that Ryan is here with an earthquake, we felt a real shock.
He looked right and left in the room and said that you can see things moving behind me. New Zealand falls into the Pacific Ocean’s ‘Ring of Fire’ area and is sometimes referred to as an insecure island because of regular earthquakes.
According to the US Geological Survey, Monday’s earthquake had a magnitude of 5.6 and its epicenter was at a depth of the sea 100 kilometers north-east of Wellington.
No major loss of life or property is confirmed, however. Ardern continued the interview and told the interviewer that the earthquake had subsided.
They said we’re fine Ryan. The lights have stopped moving on me and I feel I’m sitting under a solid structure now.
