A magnitude 6.3 earthquake struck Canterbury Province in New Zealand (population: 440,000) Monday just before midnight local time.

Microsoft activated its Disaster Response protocol and took a number of steps, including ensuring the safety of our employees and offering customers, partners and local response agencies technical support to help ensure business continuity.
