Default 6.3 earthquake hits Christchurch

A massive earthquake has struck Christchurch with witnesses telling New Zealand media the 6.3 magnitude quake felt more violent than the quake in September.


There are reports of widespread destruction in the city, whichw as hit by a quake last September.
Radio New Zealand's reporter says staff at the Christchurch newsroom had to cling to their desks during the shaking. Large filing cabinets toppled.
People made their way out of the building but when they got out they couldn't see for dust.
The quake was centred at Lyttelton at a depth of 5km.
Phone lines are down and calls are not being connected to emergency services, The New Zealand Herald reports.
The quake was felt as far away as Wellington and Dunedin.

Our Kiwi friends do not deserve this. I pray and hope no lives have been taken.

Are there any cruise ships at Lyttelton today?

It was a shallow earthquake, reported to be 5 km depth.
I thought it felt almost as bad as the 7.1.
Buildings are down in Christchurch.

We just got back from a cruise to New Zealand on the Rhapsody. I was heartbroken when I saw the cathedral had been severely damaged. I stood in front of it taking numerous photos.

Such devastation in Christchurch and still so many people trapped in buildings, just horrific.

Watching live coverage on Australia's Channel 7.

It has just been reported that more than 60% of Lyttleton has been destroyed.

Our hearts go out to all those affected. A special city in my heart as it is my birthplace.

The aftershocks continue, one at 2.50 pm measured 5.5.

Far more damage in Christchurch today, than the September quake.
