Tsunami sirens ring out on New Zealand’s North Island following earthquake

CA, 05 Mar 2021
A tsunami warning was issued for large stretches of New Zealand’s northeast coastline on March 5 after a magnitude-8.1 earthquake — the third in the country that morning — struck near the Kermadec Islands, about 600 miles northeast of the North Island.

New Zealand’s National Emergency Management Agency warned residents in areas ranging from the Bay of Islands down to Tolaga Bay to “move immediately” to higher ground or "as far inland as possible.”

People took to higher ground to wait out the end of the tsunami warning as a safety measure, and schools were evacuated.
