Solomon Islands earthquake – take care on the water today

 Auckland Civil Defence is standing down following the cancellation of a tsunami threat this morning.

The threat was generated by a 7.8 magnitude earthquake near the Solomon Islands this morning.

Auckland CDEM’s Head of Emergency Management Operations, Aaron Davis, says while the threat has been cancelled, people should take care on the water today.

“Some of the currents could be strong and unusual, people should take care on the water.

“Events like these are a good reminder to make sure you know if you live in a tsunami evacuation zone.”

“If you live near the coast and you feel a long, strong earthquake, be gone.

 

“Don’t wait for a tsunami or for an official warning. Move immediately to higher ground or as far inland as you can. Walk if you can. Stay there until you get the all clear.”

 

This morning’s event is a timely reminder to:

·         Check the tsunami evacuation maps for your area, so you know if you live or work in an evacuation zone. 

·         If you are in an evacuation zone, think about how you will get to higher ground.

·         Sign up for public alerting emails and text messages on our website

·         Visit getthru.govt.nz to find out how to best prepare your household for an emergency.

Marine threat lifted for Auckland

Monday 14 November 2016 09:13 AM

Current Situation

The Ministry of Civil Defence and Emergency Management has lifted the marine threat that applied to the Auckland region following this morning’s quake and tsunami threat.

This means advice to stay off beaches and out of the water on Auckland’s east coast no longer applies – however please continue to take care as currents may be strong before returning to normal.

Auckland Civil Defence has been monitoring the threat of tsunami waves following a 7.5 magnitude earthquake near Culverden (Canterbury, South Island) just after midnight this morning (14 November).

Our thoughts are with those further south that felt the worst of last night’s activity. This is a reminder that Auckland is vulnerable in an earthquake or tsunami and we should all have emergency plans in place.
