New tsunami evacuation zones online
Tsunami evacuation zones for the Chatham Islands are now online on Canterbury Maps.
The tsunami evacuation zones are the areas that you may need to evacuate or stay out of if you feel a long (longer than a minute) or strong (hard to stand up) earthquake, or if there is an official tsunami warning. You can find out more about the zones and what they mean on our Emergency Management page. Look out for more information coming next year, including information boards and info in the Emergency Management at a glance booklet.
