Six UNCW Students In New Zealand Safe After Quake

Six University of North Carolina-Wilmington students studying in New Zealand are safe after the island nation was rocked by an earthquake.

University officials told WWAY-TV that only one student was in Christchurch when the earthquake hit. The home she was staying in was damaged, but she is safe.

The magnitude 6.3 earthquake struck Christchurch near lunchtime Tuesday, killing at least 75 people.

The school says the other five students were studying away from the quake in areas that were not damaged.
