Okataina Volcanic Center July 24-31 2010

A swarm of earthquakes at Okataina Volcanic Center started on the 24th July 2010. The trend of the swarm is in a south west to north east direction between Te Horoa Dome in the south and Rotokohu Dome in the north and generally confined between Lake Okataina in the west and the Tarawera River in the east.
The swarm has seen two sets of multiple events, the first on 24th July of 29 quakes, with the main cluster located between Tuahu and Makatiti Domes, and other individual events running in a line SW to NE.
