A large earthquake has hit central NZ this afternoon.

Initial reports suggest that it lasted for over 10 seconds and was a 'violent shake'.

It was 6.2 in magnitude and 80 kilometres deep.

It was 45 kilometres south east of St Arnaud.

The quake follows two smaller shakes in a similar region yesterday.

More to come.
