At this stage, small 30cm surges have been recorded on the gauge at East Cape. While these might be small, the first waves aren't always the biggest and the advice remains to get to higher ground or as far inland as possible.Please don't go sightseeing and stay away from any beaches, rivers and streams along coastal areas of the Gisborne District.

No. No other places in the pacific. Hawaii was given 'all clear' early on.

And Wellington Bay, NZ has been given the 'all clear' though a marine and coastal warning remains in efect. There is still a Tsunami warning for other Northern coastal areas of NZ.

30 cm does not seem like anything. One would think '30 cm' might just clean my skin up to my calf. But it is the strength and force at which 30 cm of water in a huge area pulls out and comes back in. 30 cm could knock you over when it is a tsunami surge.

Just to describe, not that anyone asked.

Five aftershocks so far all between 5.3 to 5.7 their Civil Defense force is telling everyone to stay away from the water for now till they give the all clear.

New Zealand might be much safer now. The Winner of the Annual burger Cookoff has been crowned in Wellington.


A chicken burger inspired by Vietnamese cuisine has been awarded the title of Wellington's best burger.


Wellington Bay was an area alread given the 'all clear'.

I hope this is a good sign. Looks like a good burger, too.

Where did you get that from its not even New Zealand you can tell by the asian haircuts and the way people run around
Although for a minute I thought it might be Dominion Rd in Auckland (same description)


We wear mostly black clothes here too, those people are too colourfully dressed
