The herald have a map showing a 15 hour propagation to NZ. No warnings from Niwa yet so guess we are pretty safe. What are the chances?

(sorry no link mobile device issue)

if it is coming there's no land mass to stop it , only distance .




Common sense is not as common as you think.

vexxxboy: if it is coming there's no land mass to stop it , only distance .

Little bit more complex than that depending on origin and undersea ridges/trenches etc etc.

Nice to see civil defense giving an indication there. Herald not particularly helpful.

I.m about 40km from the sea, so the chances are slim in these parts!

You can see the waves reaching NZ on the Geonet tsunami network gauges.  Pretty small - but definitely there:

Interesting. Nice to have those sources for next time. A second large earthquake just occurred in the same area.
