Spooked Dog Barks as Earthquake Rattles New Zealand House

A dog in Hastings, New Zealand, did not appreciate it when a strong earthquake could be felt in its home on March 5, one of three in the region that led to tsunami warnings.

Hastings resident Molly Molls recorded footage of her dog growling and barking as the tremors were felt.

Tsunami warnings were issued for large stretches of New Zealand’s northeast coastline on March 5 after a magnitude 8.1 earthquake struck in the Kermadec Islands, about 600 miles northeast of New Zealand’s North Island.

New Zealand authorities later advised that the most significant wave activity had passed. Credit: Molly Molls via Storyful
