    Emergency response teams are checking the aftermath of the earthquake off the North Island's East Coast this morning



    A 7.3 magnitude quake struck at 2.30am, causing a tsunami alert for coastal areas.

    That's now been lifted.

    Minister for Emergency Management Kiri Allan says today will provide a better picture of what happened.

    She says they'll be assessing any structural or land impacts, and reviewing how the event unfolded.
