Earthquake in Christchurch, New Zealand

A 6.3 magnitude earthquake has struck in Christchurch, New Zealand, causing buildings to crumble, phone and power line outages, and toppling the 147 year-old Christchurch Cathedral's steeple. Reportedly, 80% of the city is currently without power.   The area is still recovering from a 7.1 quake in September - hopefully reinforcements since then spare injury.
