NZ earthquake pics

A series of powerful tremors rattled the quake-prone New Zealand city of
Christchurch on Monday, destroying buildings and sending boulders tumbling down
hillsides nearly four months after a quake killed 181 people.
We would expect a number of aftershocks in the magnitude 4.0 to 5.0 range on the
coming days and weeks," said Kelvin Berryman, GNS's Manager of Natural Hazards
Research. Prime Minister John Key said the new tremor would probably affect recovery efforts. " acknowledge that this is a setback for Christchurch, but it does not lessen our resolve to rebuild," he told reporters in parliament.

four months after the major earthquake which hit the city on February 22, 2011
resulting in the deaths of 181 people.
