There have so far been no reports of any damage or casualties.
The Pacific Tsunami Warning centre has reportedly said that "no destructive widespread tsunami threat" exists.
The Christchurch-based newspaper, The Press, said aftershocks were ongoing and that the electricity supply appeared to have been knocked out across much of the city.

My brother is in Christchurch, I understand they are without power from an earlier message, sounds like it was pretty scary.

"Structural damage to houses and broken glass have been reported throughout Christchurch"
A Christchurch Hospital shift manager said there are injuries and damage from the quake. "We are in emergency planning at the moment," he said.

Bob Parker the mayor is talking about 'significant minor damage'. It was about a 7.4 I think. Looting has been mentioned. The whole central city area is out of bounds. No electricity people are being urged to save water and stay indoors.

The initial reports in Aus certainly mentioned 7.4, but after that they've varied between that and 7.0 Also now reporting an aftershock of 7.0.
Hope everyone is OK something that size isn't good is it

CNN was reporting it as 7.2 near Christchurch.

Hope all BE members, their families and everyone else are okay.

Heard about this on the car radio...hope everyone is OK.

I was worried about my bessie friend's daughter...she's training to be a doctor and I know she's in that part of the world for 3 months training. Fortunately she's in Oz at the moment.

They are likely to declare a civil emergency.
