One dies in New Zealand aftershocks

In New Zealand, the city of Christchurch has mostly restored power after a series of aftershocks yesterday, the strongest of which measured 6.0 on the Richter Scale.

The tremors were some of the most violent in over 3 months. Several buildings collapsed, and one nursing home resident was killed. Dozens of people were injured, although most of these were minor.

The people of Christchurch have suffered thousands of aftershocks since the earthquake on February 22nd, which killed 181 people.
