    An earthquake makes for a good excuse to do home renovations

    An earthquake makes for a good excuse to do home renovations



    The Earthquake Commission has received 370 insurance claims since last week's 5.8 magnitude quake near Levin.

    Most of the claims have come from Horowhenua, situated closest to the quake area.

    Head of Strategic Partnering Josh Lindsay says the damage is mostly cosmetic.

    He says one customer advised them of a roof leak, which they'll prioritise due to sanitary concerns.
