WELLINGTON, Sept. 7 (Xinhua) -- There were no reports of injury or damage after a magnitude 5.2 earthquake shook Hawke's Bay, in New Zealand's eastern North Island, on Tuesday morning.

The 15 km deep quake struck about 20 km southeast of Porangahau in the southern Hawke's Bay at 10.48 a.m. local time (2248 GMT on Monday), GNS Science said.

It was felt widely in the Hawke's Bay. The National Crisis Management Center said local Civil Defense authorities reported no damage or injuries.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center did not issue a tsunami alert after the quake.

The quake comes just days after a magnitude 7.1 quake devastated parts of central South Island's Canterbury region and left hundreds homeless.
