Most recent information from the Ministry of Civil Defence and Emergency Management indicates reduced likelihood that Porirua will be significantly affected by this event.
We still recommend that people stay out of the water and off beaches for the next 24 hours, as tidal currents may still be unpredictable.
Porirua Emergency Management Office will continue to monitor the situation.
Further information can be found by visiting www.pcc.govt.nz, or listening to your local radio station.
