Chile earthquake - Tsunami warning (Marine and Beach threat)

18 Sep 2015
The Ministry of Civil Defence & Emergency Management has cancelled the National Tsunami Warning (Marine and Beach Threat) issued yesterday after the earthquake near Chile.
The National Warning no longer needs to be in place as the threat to New Zealand’s East Coast and Chatham Islands has largely passed.
We expect that there may be some unusual water conditions for the next 24-36 hours and advise people to be cautious and use discretion before going into the water or going out in small board. We expect things to be back to normal within that 36 hour period.
