Volcanoes quiet.
Forecast confidence = low.

24 December. Rotorua 3.9, 11.18pm
25 December. South of Kermadecs 4.9
Low confidence was justified.
Early action never built up.
Like the Pacific forecast, driving conditions were higher than quakes, suggesting a buildup.
The 30 December Eketahuna 4.7 will make the 1 January, 2016 forecast an interesting one.
