Strong quake rattles New Zealand’s North Island

PanARMENIAN.Net - A strong earthquake has rattled New Zealand’s lower North Island including the capital Wellington, although there were no immediate reports of damage or injuries, according to the Associated Press.

The United States Geological Survey reported the magnitude 6.3 quake struck at 3:52 pm local time on Monday, Jan 20, about 38 kilometers (24 miles) northeast of the town of Masterton.

New Zealand lies on the Pacific’s “Ring of Fire,” an arc of earthquake and volcanic activity that stretches around the Pacific Rim.

An earthquake in the city of Christchurch in 2011 destroyed much of the downtown and killed 185 people.
