Thousands no power-Christchurch Earthquakes

Residents are Frightened, Fearing more Violent Shocks.

A series of strong aftershocks rattled New Zealand's quake-devastated city of Christchurch on Monday, damaging buildings, injuring residents and throwing thousands of homes into darkness. The first 5.2-magnitude aftershock struck the city at lunchtime. Just over an hour later, a stronger 6.0-magnitude quake struck sending residents into a panic.

Tens of thousands of people were spending a freezing night without power after Christchurch was shaken by a series of violent earthquakes.

With temperatures plummeting under a clear winter sky, the Orion lines company warned more than 20,000 householders they would not be reconnected until at least Tuesday.
Residents were also being told to boil drinking water.
Christchurch Hospital said two of the people injured in the largest of the quakes, which measured magnitude 6.0 on the Richter scale, were still seriously ill.
Another 44 people were treated in the hospital's emergency department, most of the injuries resulting from falling building materials.
Officials expressed astonishment that no one was killed in the tremor, the biggest aftershock so far of the 6.3 quake on February 22 in which 181 people died.
