Residents of New Zealand's capital city of Wellington are still feeling the aftershocks of a 6.9 earthquake that hit Sunday. So far, no deaths have been reported.

Meanwhile, city officials are telling people not to travel downtown.

"We have had very few injuries as a result of the earthquake, and we want to keep it that way," Wellington Mayor Celia Wade-Brown said in a statement Monday.

Residents of a nearby town reported minor damage to their homes and businesses.

A series of quakes hit Christchurch, New Zealand, in 2011, killing 185 people and destroying much of the city's downtown.
