The National Advisory: Tsunami Potential Marine and Beach Threat issued by MCDEM earlier today in response to the Santa Cruz Islands earthquake and local tsunami has now been cancelled.

The threat to most areas of New Zealand's coast has now passed. However, a minor threat still remains on the West Coast from Taranaki to Milford Sound for the next 24 hours. Advice from GeoNet Tsunami Expert Panel is that there may be unusual water conditions e.g. local tidal surges and strong currents, especially during the early hours of Thursday 7 February. People should exercise caution and discretion before entering the water or going out in small boats.
