  Original Published: 7/22/2013  A 6.9 magnitude earthquake rocked New Zealand on Sunday.   And, the scary moments were caught on camera in one Wellington newsroom.    You can see people ducking for cover under desks as the ground shakes beneath them.   The United States Geological Service says the earthquake's epicenter was about 35-miles south of the city.   It was the latest in a series of tremors that have jolted New Zealand's lower North Island in the past few days.   No word yet if anyone was injured.
