Kali I am. It was in the South Island. People down there are saying the good news is it happened in the middle of the night.
The quake was right along a world famous coastline part where there are amazing train rides right along the waterside with towering mountains. The slips are right along there and I do not believe any tourists were hurt. They were the first to be taken by helicopter to safety. The local Maori were cooking up fresh lobster for anyone who wanted. They believe in giving freely to anyone who comes.... it has been such a heart warming experience in the aftermath.
The South Island is very prone to quakes. This one is not far from the last really bad one a few years ago. A different fault line though.
