Update. 29 June 1.00pm
29 June.
Northeast of Waiheke Island 4.1 4.52am
The decision to bring forward the forecast period to 27 June was a good one, Pacific volcanoes responded to the early arrival of solar conditions.
Pacific quakes have been very quiet during the period.
Local quakes have been under Mag 4 but good location success for those following more closely at lower magnitude.
No indication that local volcanoes are hot, despite heavy Pacific and Indonesia pressure.
Persistent solar conditions are slowly falling on 29 June.
The forecast period is extended to 29 June.
Late activity is always possible so long as solar conditions carry enough energy.
North Island is higher risk.

Update. 30 June 1.30pm
30 June.
East of Cape Campbell 4.5 2.18am. Low tide= 12.37am
Southwest Arm Manapouri 3.9 7.03am. Low tide= 6.42am
Southwest of White Island 3.7 8.15am. High tide= 7.54am
Late action has come to New Zealand.
Lunar modulation to low tide on the two biggest quakes.
Solar conditions are on the quake threshold and falling today.
The period has been heavily volcanic and Pacific quakes were subdued during the period.
The forecast period has probably ended.

Summary.
29 June.
Northeast of Waiheke Island 4.1 4.52am
30 June.
East of Cape Campbell 4.5 2.18am. Low tide= 12.37am
Southwest Arm Manapouri 3.9 7.03am. Low tide= 6.42am
Southwest of White Island 3.7 8.15am. High tide= 7.54pm
Local quakes came very late in the period, following the Pacific trend for low quake activity.
High magnitude risk wasn't fully justified even though recent South of Kermadecs and North Island quakes were strong.
Widening Cook Strait risk locations from the previous period was justified with the Cape Campbell 4.5.
Lunar modulation was possible for two quakes on 30 June...within two hours of low tide is a casual outlook for modulation.
Quakes are quiet on 1 July.
Ruapehu and White Island are quiet.
