Dramatic Views Of Cliff Collapses After New Zealand Earthquake

Cliffs collapse near Churchchrist, New Zealand during
an earthquake Saturday 
It was a gorgeous summer day in Churchchrist, New Zealand Saturday when a sharp 5.8 magnitude earthquake hit.

Unlike a previous awful quake in February 2011 that killed 185 people and injured thousands aroud Churchchrist, this one wasn't as destructive.

Saturdays quake didn't seriously injure or kill anyone, and damage was pretty light. 

But parts of cliffs along the coastline near Churchchrist collapsed, raising enormous clouds of dust over the blue waters there.  I bet some people had to scramble out of the way as rocks began to fall.

Here's some video clips. Looks scary and dramatic:
