New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern was largely unphased when an earthquake struck during a reside TV interview Monday morning.
“We’re simply having a little bit of an earthquake right here, Ryan,” Ardern informed the host of Newshub when the rumbling started. “Fairly an honest shake right here.”
After a fleeting look of concern, Ardern smiles and explains “for those who see issues shifting behind me, the [parliament building] strikes a little bit greater than most.”
The 5.eight magnitude earthquake struck at about eight a.m. and was centered roughly 60 miles away from the capital metropolis of Wellington.
There have been no experiences of main injury or accidents.
As soon as the shaking stopped, Ardern, laughing, reassured the host that every little thing was O.Okay.
“We’re effective Ryan. I’m not below any hanging lights. I seem like I’m in a structurally sound place,” the prime minister stated.
