Antarctica 'Guardians' Retaliate Against America With Massive New Zealand Earthquake
As the United States neared election day, Secretary of State John Kerry announced he would take a historic trip to the massive, frozen seventh continent, Antarctica.
He was flying over the South Pacific toward New Zealand the next day when the results began to come in.
A major 5.8 magnitude aftershock has rocked New Zealand's South Island, north of where two massive earthquakes measuring 6.3 and 7.8 struck less than 24 hours before.
Local media reported that six-foot-high waves were rolling into Kaikoura, a coastal city north of Christchurch, and at least one building had collapsed. Phone service and the power supply in Kaikoura appeared to be cut off so the extent of the damage was not immediately clear.
