You feel any of that, Dave?

A moderate earthquake rattled the New Zealand capital of Wellington, where it is Saturday morning, but no damage or injuries were reported.

The magnitude 4.3 temblor near Upper Hutt city just north of Wellington shook the region early Saturday, according to the monitoring group Geological and Nuclear Sciences.

The quake was centered about 16 miles below the earth's surface.

New Zealand sits above an area of the Earth's crust where two tectonic plates collide. The country records more than 14,000 earthquakes a year — but only about 150 are felt by residents. Fewer than 10 a year do any damage.

The group said the quake was likely to have been felt throughout the Wellington region.

Emergency services said no damage or injuries were reported.
