Tsunami warning cancelled:
A tsunami was confirmed from the earthquake in the Kermadec Islands. Advice from GNS Science is that the tsunami does not represent a threat to New Zealand. However, they expect that there will be unusually strong tidal surges and currents.
For the next 24 hours people should exercise caution and discretion before entering the water or going out in small boats in all parts of New Zealand.
