The powerful 6.3-magnitude quake struck around six miles outside Christchurch during lunchtime rush hour, causing widespread destruction and injury.
Eyewitnesses said the three-mile deep tremor, believed to be an aftershock from a 7.1 magnitude earthquake which struck last September, levelled high-rise buildings, tore up pavements and sprayed rubble onto the streets below.
A state of emergency has been declared in the city with collapsed debris and buildings trapping an unknown number of people.
