Watch Out!!!

The earthquake hit the north of Christchurch near Hanmer Springs at 12:02 in the morning. The earthquake struck 16m deep. It was then followed by more than a dozen aftershocks across the country including two 6.2 magnitude quakes near Kaikoura.

A tsunami warning has been issued to a number of areas around New Zealand. This includes all of the East Coast of New Zealand, both in the North Island and the South.  A 2m tsunami has hit Kaikoura.

Earthquake Advice: If you are in a house and a earthquake is going, please do not go outside sightseeing. Stay inside and remember to DROP, COVER and HOLD.

Tsunami Advice: If you are on a beach and the you see the sea getting sucked in, and you see the sea level getting higher, get to higher ground quickly.
