The North Island has again been rattled by a significant earthquake.

GeoNet is reporting that a magnitude 5.7 quake struck 10 kilometres south of Turangi at 12.50pm.

The quake was 90 kilometres deep and was felt across the North Island.

It comes four days after a magnitude 7 earthquake centred offshore from Taranaki rattled residents from the Bay of Plenty to Canterbury, but caused little damage.
