A small quake this morning has reminded residents the ground under their feet remains unsteady.

The magnitude 3.5 earthquake was recorded at 10.01am today.

Geonet reported the quake was centred near Southshore and was 5km deep. 

Social media savvy Cantabrians took to Twitter to report feeling the shake.

Green MP Mojo Mathers wrote about feeling a "wobble" in the central suburb of Richmond. 

Donna R described the quake as a "slight jiver", while Press columnist Mike Yardley called it a "morning grumble".

"A ratty little quake here in Chch ... more bark than bite," he wrote.
