Updates here http://www.aucklandcivildefence.org.nz/Emergency-Status/

Current Situation

Tsunami warning for Auckland region: Expected arrival in Auckland (North Head) is 1022hrs (NZDT) today

The Auckland Region Civil Defence Emergency Management Group has issued a tsunami warning for Auckland region’s coastlines. A tsunami is expected to arrive at 1022hrs (NZDT) today.

This warning is for: a non destructive tsunami for New Zealand, wave heights at the shore of 1 metre with the possibility of up to 3 metres (updated). Scientific Advisors confirm a possible marine threat along the east coast of the North Island, South Island and Chatham Islands, possibly over 1 metre.

Tide levels at three Auckland locations at 1022hrs are as follows:
Waitemata Harbour: 40cm below Mean Sea Level
Mahurangi Harbour: At Mean Sea Level
Piha: 1m above Mean Sea Level

Should tsunami waves reach these locations, the levels in the table above may rise by between 1 and 3 metres and will be travelling at high speeds and in great volume. It is expected tides will be affected for up to 12 hours after initial tsunami arrivals.

My Mum lives up in the Bay of Islands (Opua).
She was able to watch from her deck, water rushing OUT around the edges in a very STRONG outgoing surge.

She took some photo's, so I will try to get and then upload.

Went out from Gulf Harbour about 7 with Stefan, water was pretty lumpy and we were back before 10.
Just made it to Shearers for a jig, had a few drifts then back. No hits, reckon the fish knew something was up.
Chatted to a boatie who was casting a popper for no return, guess what he said, "Should have been here yesterday!"
What a barsteward Laughing
Got a huge dunking on the way back, absolute bath full over the top. We laughed like drains Cool
Glad it was warm water.
