Tsunami evacuation zones are the areas that you may need to evacuate or stay out of if you feel a long (longer than one minute) or strong (hard to stand up) earthquake, or if there is an official tsunami warning.

You can find out more about the tsunami zones and what they mean on our Emergency Management page.

More information, including information boards and a new booklet, Emergency Management at a Glance, will be available soon.
