Two quakes shake South Island

Two earthquakes have shaken parts of the South Island but no damage has been reported.

A 4.5-magnitude quake, centred 50km northeast of French Pass in the Marlborough Sounds, struck shortly before 8am today and a 4.2-magnitude quake, centred 60km south of Hokitika, struck about two hours later, GeoNet says.
