Tsunami evacuation maps updated

August 28, 2017

Northlanders are being encouraged to familiarise themselves with an updated set of tsunami evacuation maps, covering Northland's 3,200km of coastline.

 

The maps are more user-friendly than the earlier versions they replace and allow users to enter their address to go directly to the relevant location on the maps, which can also be exported, saved and printed.

 

Northland Regional Councillor Rick Stolwerk, who represents the regional council on the Northland Civil Defence Emergency Management Group, said the previous tsunami zones for Northland were created by GNS Science in 2011. GNS Science was again commissioned last year to develop updated zones, making use of significant advances in the science of modelling tsunami, along with high-quality land surface data for Northland available through LiDAR (a laser-based mapping technology).

 

Councillor Stolwerk urged Northlanders to update their understanding of the tsunami risk and evacuation routes from the locations where they live, work and play.
