Quake rocks NZ city, buildings damaged


A strong earthquake has rocked New Zealand, destroying buildings and cutting power in a city on the North Island.

Panicked people rushed into the streets of Gisborne when the earthquake, measuring 6.8 on the Richter scale, struck the city about 8.55pm (1855 AEDT).
