Thanks to modern building codes and sound disaster insurance policies, the damage from Tuesday's devastating New Zealand earthquake was limited.
Prime Minister John Key said Tuesday's 6.3 New Zealand earthquake has killed at least 65 people in what 'may well be New Zealand's darkest day.' Authorities are still trying to glean information to mobilize rescue efforts.
President Obama declared Tuesday's tsunami a 'major disaster' and dispatched aid to American Samoa. As many as 120 people may have died, and more tsunamis could hit.
