Submitted by admin2 on Sat, 15/01/2022 - 11:45pm

We expect New Zealand coastal areas on the north and east coast of the North Island and the Chatham Islands to experience strong and unusual currents and unpredictable surges at the shore following a large volcanic eruption at Hunga-Tonga-Hunga-Ha'pai in Tonga.

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.

14/01/2022: KAIMAUMAU - WAIHARARA FIRE UPDATE

Submitted by admin2 on Fri, 14/01/2022 - 11:35pm

Ex-tropical cyclone Cody has brought wind speeds of 20-30kph and gusts of 50-60kph today. This wind has created flare ups on the fire ground and we’re currently experiencing a flare up to the north of the fire ground that is visible from a distance.

This flare up is safely within our control and containment lines. It is an area of the fire we’re allowing to burn to reduce fuel that we had planned to burn in the future.

Anyone affected by the smoke should keep their windows and doors shut and, if experiencing any health issues, call Healthline on 0800 611 116.
