(CNN) -- A 5.8-magnitude earthquake struck New Zealand near the city of Christchurch on Friday, the U.S. Geological Survey said, with the temblor shaking buildings in an area still recovering from a powerful quake in February.

No casualties have been reported so far, said Vince Cholewa, spokesman for the New Zealand Ministry of Civil Defence and Emergency Management.

The quake took place 26 kilometers (16 miles) east northeast of Christchurch at a depth of 4.7 kilometers.
