If there is interest in data centre provisioning or construction, disaster planning or inside/outside plant strategies intended to mitigate damage by earthquakes then the NZNOG list might well be a good English-language place to get some advice.

Earthquakes of magnitude 4 and up happen pretty regularly (several times per week is common).
