There aren't any major international cables to the south island. The big 
one is the southern Cross cable that lands on either side of Auckland, 
which is the north of the North Island, which is operating normally.

KAREN (The Kiwi Advanced Research Network) core in the south island is 
still operating, but most of the member sites in Christchurch are down:

News is reporting deaths now, sadly.
