NZ city hit by another quake; no reports of damage

The earthquake-rattled city of Christchurch has been shaken by another powerful temblor.



Wellington: The earthquake-rattled city of
Christchurch has been shaken by another powerful temblor.

The magnitude-4.7 quake struck just after 8:30 p.m.
(local time) today and there were no initial reports of
significant damage or injuries.

The country`s Prime Minister, John Key, was in
Christchurch watching a televised All Blacks rugby match with
other fans at the time. The game was being played in Auckland.

Christchurch has been struck repeatedly by earthquakes
over the past 13 months, including a devastating magnitude-6.1
quake that struck February 22 and killed 181 people, and
destroyed much of the city`s downtown.

Today`s quake was the largest since June.
