Reuters.- Evacuation orders were issued for New Zealanders living in some areas on the east coast of the North Island after a third earthquake hit the region on Friday.
The latest was an 8.0-magnitude earthquake that struck the Kermadec Islands, northeast of New Zealand’s North Island. It came soon after a 7.4 magnitude earthquake struck the same region.
Earlier, another major 7.2 magnitude earthquake struck about 900 kilometers away in the eastern North Island and was felt by the thousands, triggering its tsunami warning. This warning was later removed.
New Zealand’s National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) issued a tsunami warning, saying the danger areas are from the Bay of Islands to Whangarei, Matata to Tolaga Bay, including Wakatane and Opotiki, and the islands of the Great Barrier Reef.
“People close to the coast in the following areas should immediately move to the nearest higher ground, outside all tsunami evacuation zones, or as far inland as possible. Doesn’t stay at home,” Nema said on Twitter.
“The earthquake has not been felt in some of these areas, but an immediate evacuation should be done as a devastating tsunami is possible,” he said.
