Tsunami Warning Downgraded

Civil Defense has further downgraded the Tsunami threat level.

All people who evacuated can now return.

The advice remains, for all areas under Beach and Marine threat, to stay off beach and shore areas.

Strong currents and surges can injure and drown people. There is a danger to swimmers, surfers, people fishing, small boats and anyone in or near the water close to shore.

People in or near the sea in affected areas should move out of the water, off beaches and shore areas and away from harbours, rivers and estuaries.
