An open day is being held on the Saturday of Auckland Anniversary Weekend to ensure as many residents and visitors as possible can attend.

The open day - organised by Waikato Regional Council and Thames-Coromandel District Council, with civil defence - provides an opportunity to learn more about what we understand to be the tsunami threat to Whitianga.

At the open day you’ll be able to talk directly with the tsunami scientists, hazard specialists and emergency managers that have worked on this project.

We’re also keen to hear what you think should be the approach to managing the tsunami risk in these areas. We want to know what you think about such things as:

  • the emergency management procedures that should be adopted
  • the community education approach that should be undertaken
  • what you think about coastal land use planning, such as restricting the location of facilities like kindergartens or rest homes being built in potential tsunami inundation paths.

For more information about the tsunami risk at Whitianga, including Wharekaho, see our tsunami web pages.
