An earthquake of 6.3 magnitude struck New Zealand on Tuesday afternoon, Feb. 22. Many buildings in central Christchurch and the eastern suburbs were heavily damaged, leaving, at press time, 166 people dead and another 200 missing.

Some major roads, bridges and tunnels were damaged, and broken water and sewage pipes, gas leaks and downed power lines caused thousands of people to evacuate. Other areas of New Zealand were not affected.
