Geologists from GNS Science have reported that a reasonably large number has occurred this morning off the coast of “one of several” Pacific islands where those sorts of things tend to happen.

The number, which was felt only by people on micro-blogging site Twitter, was somewhere between 6 and 8, and lasted for a certain duration of time.

There have been no reports of damage, injury or minor inconvenience from the number, but GNS is warning the no people who live in that area not to become complacent, as several more slightly smaller numbers are expected in the coming days and weeks.

GNS scientist Kevin Fenaughty said he first noticed the number when the wiggly machine on his desk went more sideways than before, producing a series of thick side-to-side lines.

Fenaughty said he knew immediately that if he told someone, it would end up in the news.

He also hoped to be quoted, but was only paraphrased.
