A powerful earthquake measuring 7.0 magnitude has struck New Zealand's South Island, smashing buildings, homes and roads and causing power cuts.
The quake hit at 4:35am on Saturday morning when most people were asleep. It was so powerful it was felt widely across the island.
At least 500 buildings in Christchurch, the island's largest city, have been destroyed by the quake.
Nobody died - but two people were seriously injured. The quake was as powerful as the one that hit Haiti in January this year.
But New Zealand is more experienced than Haiti when it comes to earthquakes - their buildings are much stronger so were able to withstand the shocks.
There are actually more than 14,000 earthquakes a year registered in New Zealand but most of them are too weak to be felt.
Prime Minister John Key has been visiting the damaged areas in Christchurch. Several buildings had to be demolished because they were considered too unsafe to be left standing.
Schools across the region have been closed as officials check whether they're safe or not - good news for these guys!
