Almost six months after the MW 7.1 Darfield (Canterbury) earthquake, on 22 February 2011 at 12:51 p.m. (local time), an MW 6.2 earthquake struck the city and suburbs of Christchurch—the largest city on the South Island of New Zealand, with about 400,000 inhabitants. The Christchurch earthquake can be considered one of the greatest natural disasters recorded in New Zealand. The death toll was more than 180, with around 2,000 people injured, and structures already weakened by the Darfield event and its aftershocks were badly affected (Cubrinovski and Green 2010; Tonkin and Taylor Ltd. 2010; Kam...
