Subject: New Zealand cliffs collapse in Christchurch earthquake

Written By: Philip Eno on 02/14/16 at 9:27 am

Cliffs have collapsed in New Zealand during an earthquake in the city of Christchurch on the South Island. No serious damage or fatalities were reported in the Valentine's Day quake that struck at 13:13 local time (00.13 GMT). Beaches to the east of Christchurch were busy with swimmers and surfers when rocks began to fall into the sea. The 5.7 magnitude quake occurred days before the anniversary of a deadly one in 2011. That destroyed the city centre and killed 185 people. New Zealand lies on the notorious Ring of Fire, the line of frequent quakes and volcanic eruptions that circles virtually the entire Pacific rim.
