Strong earthquakes rock New Zealand again

Christchurch, NZ hit with new earthquakes

QUOTE: "Buildings topple and cars sink into the ground after two magnitude 6.0 and 5.5 aftershocks strike the quake-devastated city of Christchurch. The city was hit by a major quake February 22 that killed 181 people."

 I can't imagine after the terror of what took place in February what it must be like to have additional tremors months later.  I know the seismologists would probably say it's unrelated to the volcanic activity in Chile or the other earthquakes that have occurred around the Ring of Fire, but I'm curious to see if there will be another pattern like we saw in February/March where quakes crop up in various places around the Pacific Rim.
