A tsunami has hit after an earthquake struck New Zealand's South Island.

The US Geological Survey said the magnitude-7.8 quake hit just after midnight, some 95km from Christchurch.

The tsunami arrived in the north-eastern coast about two hours later.

Officials said the first waves may not be the largest, with tsunami activity possible for several hours.

Residents were warned to head inland or for higher ground along the coast.
