No, the pits of hell have not opened-yet.
"A strong smell of sulphur spreading across Christchurch's eastern suburbs is unlikely to be gas and there was no cause for concern, Civil Defence says..."
I can answer this one.
I worked doing drain laying in the Village of the Damned some years ago.
The gas lines from the old coal gas plant leaked and the smell of this gas permeated the soil throughout the city. When you dig, you release the smell.
I'm picking that the subterranean disturbances have released this rater foul but harmless odor.
