As many know, there was a devastating earthquake in Chile in the night which has caused the death of many people. This quake caused a tsunami which has made its way across the pacific ocean resulting in surges all over the east coast of New Zealand. We are still in tsunami alert, beaches and low lying areas all over New Zealand have been evacuated.
Our coast line is only suffering from washing machine like waters, with water levels rising about 1 meter over 5 minutes, but we have been told to be on the look out for worse to come with a warning of potential 3 meter waves. This is unlikely but still note worthy on the scale of this quake.
My heart goes out to all who have been affected by the earthquake and I hope for a speedy recovery.
