Tsunami warning update #2 - 1:30pm 19/9/15

Tsunami warning update #2 - 1:30pm

Please note there is no immediate threat to the Coromandel.

Any tsumani effects could start to come in the Coromandel region on a mid-level to falling tide between roughly midnight tonight and 2am tomorrow.

Waikato Regional Council’s regional hazards team and Waikato Civil Defence Emergency Management Group staff in Hamilton and the Coromandel are closely monitoring advice related to the tsunami that’s occurred off Chile.

The Ministry for Civil Defence Emergency Management has advised the east coast of New Zealand could feel some effects.

The council’s regional hazards team says such effects could start to come in the Coromandel region on a mid-level to falling tide between roughly midnight tonight and 2am tomorrow.

The team believes the effects would mostly occur at sea and off the coast, with any inundation from waves or surges limited to very low-lying areas. The inundation would likely be similar to a king tide or storm surge at worst.

However, strong inner harbour currents and unusual tide movements could eventuate. Effects may still occur during high tide around 10am Friday. Boaties should check their moorings during daylight hours today given the possibility of strong and abmormal tides associated with the tsunami.

This regional council and civil defence advice will be updated as required and by no later than 5pmtonight.

Waikato Civil Defence says there is no other specific action required now but in the hours leading up to the expected arrival time, people should:

1. Stay out of the water (sea, rivers and estuaries, including boating activities)

2. Stay off beaches and shore areas

3. Do not go sightseeing

4. Share this information with family, neighbours and friends

5. Listen to the radio and/or TV for updates

6. Follow instructions of local civil defence authorities. Civil Defence is monitoring the situation and will update their Facebook page with any new developments and issue further information via other outlets as required.

The public is advised to stay up to date with warnings via news media and at www.facebook.com/WaikatoCivilDefence or www.facebook.com/WaikatoRegion

Gordon Campbell: On The Elusive Charms Of Christopher Luxon


Well, the first 36 hours of viewing the Christopher Luxon selfie were always going to be the best, before the repetitions set in. We get it, already. He’s an extroverted/big ego/high achieving/God fearing/country music lovin’/family man who is not at all averse to mansplaining to little ladies like RNZ’s Kathryn Ryan what “technical” words like “productivity” actually mean. But wait, there’s more. National is back! Mind you, that’s not the Bad National of recent experience, but the Good National of days gone by... More>>
