Moderate quake rocks New Zealand's North Island

WELLINGTON, New Zealand – A magnitude 5.6 earthquake rocked New Zealand's North Island on Friday.
No damage or injuries were reported.
Monitoring agency GNS said the quake was centered at a depth of 120 miles (200 kilometers) near the township of Tokoroa, about 60 miles (100 kilometers) south of Auckland.
On Sept. 4, a magnitude 7.1 quake hit Christchurch on South Island, toppling some buildings and causing two serious injuries.
Seismologists say aftershocks from that earthquake are continuing but Friday's quake was probably not related.
