New Zealand rescue workers are evacuating scores of tourists and residents from the town hardest hit by a series of powerful earthquakes.

Four air force helicopters are now airlifting people out of Kaikoura on the South Island after battling strong winds and heavy rain earlier.

The town, northeast of Christchurch, has been cut off by quake-triggered landslides.

Hundreds of aftershocks continue to rock the area.

Two people were killed in the 7.5 magnitude earthquake that struck the South Island early on Monday.

The capital Wellington on the North Island continues to see severe weather on Tuesday with heavy rain and flooding.
