Glad no one is hurt in the videos, kinda scary...The man says "that was a powerful speech"...if you're curious. The New Zealand city of Christchurch was hit by two major tremors on Monday at lunchtime, rattling the city and its surrounds. The quakes were of 6.0 and 5.5 magnitude respectively, not as large or as damaging as the big quake which devastated the city some months ago, but large enough to cause a commotion, and some liquefaction and flooding in the city's suburbs 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. There were no reported fatalities. New Zealand's Civil Defense said 10 people suffered minor injuries in the quakes, with the strongest put at a magnitude of 6.0 at 2.20 p.m. (10:20 p.m. ET on Sunday) local time.
