The National Advisory issued following this morning’s earthquakes near the KERMADEC ISLANDS REGION is cancelled.
The advice from GNS Science, based on ocean observations, is that the Beach and Marine threat has now passed for all areas.
Strong and unusual currents and unpredictable surges will continue for up to another 24 hours. People should remain vigilant and take extra precautions with regards to beach and ocean activities.

Minister Kiri says while the Tsunami alert has been cancelled and restrictions to head to beaches have been lifted, she asks people to be prudent with their decision to head to the beach.
