The addition of Waikato and Western Bay of Plenty and the separation of Dannevirke/ Eketahuna from Waipukurau lowered location confidence levels.
Moderate solar conditions arrived on cue.
Local quakes never made it to Mag 4, a late cluster on 28 March marked the end of the period as solar conditions faded away.
A slight solar peak late 30 March may affect Pacific equatorial regions with isolated quakes.
Local action, if any, seems likely to be below Mag 4.
