See video taken when a 5.7 quake centered near the city caused a cliff outside the city to collapse into the sea.

“Christchurch was massively damaged in a major quake in 2011,” says Rosco. “That one resulted in significant numbers of the population simply leaving the city permanently.

“Christchurch is located on a major fault line.”

  1. It was a big shake, but the cliff didn’t collapse, what you see in that video is dust clouds. Today the cliff is still there, with a few more rocks at the bottom.
