Bay of Plenty Group Controller Matt Harrex was pleased to hear evacuations were taken seriously following a magnitude 8.1 earthquake which posed a threat that a tsunami could have potentially formed and struck New Zealand’s North Eastern shores.
Some areas of the Bay of Plenty remain under a beach and marine threat.
People who evacuated were told they can now go back to their homes but were recommended to not go near shorelines or on beaches until Civil Defence gives an official update that it is safe to do so.
