NATIONAL ADVISORY: TSUNAMI ACTIVITY – CANCELLED

The National Advisory: Tsunami Activity issued following the large eruption at Hunga-Tonga-Hunga-Ha'pai in Tonga is cancelled.

The advice from GNS Science, based on ocean observations, is that the tsunami threat has now passed for all areas.

Strong and unusual currents are expected to continue for at least another 24 hours. This particularly applies to the East Coast of the North and South islands, and the South and West coasts of the South Island. Strong currents can injure and drown people. Take care and remain vigilant if you are in or near the water close to the shore (including swimming, surfing, fishing, small boats).
