September

  • September 4 – A 7.1 magnitude earthquake rocks Christchurch, New Zealand causing large amounts of damage but no direct fatalities.[49] It is the first in a series of earthquakes between 2010 and 2012 that resulted in the deaths of 187 people and over $40 billion worth of damage.[50][51] Seismologists noted that the earthquake sequence was highly unusual, and likely to never happen again anywhere else in the world.[52]
