A magnitude 3.8 quake woke some Christchurch residents in the early hours of the second anniversary of the city's deadliest day.

Two years ago today the destructive February 22, 2011 quake killed 185 people, felled hundreds of buildings and wiped out thousands of homes.

At 2.54am today, the ground beneath Christchurch showed it had not yet been silenced with a mag-3.8 quake.

Geonet shows the quake centred 8km deep, just offshore from New Brighton.
