NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 13/11/2016

Governor-General Dame Patsy Reddy has expressed her condolences to the families of the two people who lost their lives in last night's 7.5 magnitude earthquake.

She also urged New Zealanders to be careful following a swarm of aftershocks, the biggest being 6.2.

"It has been an anxious time for New Zealanders in many parts of the country as they deal with damage to property and infrastructure, power cuts, and potential tsunami warnings," she said.

"While this disruption continues, I urge all New Zealanders to attend to Civil Defence advice in their region, and to ensure that they stay in contact with friends, family and their community."
