Tsunami could strike New Zealand before public officially alerted

10 Apr 2019, Newshub

Last weekend, Auckland tested its tsunami sirens as part of its disaster management preparations, blaring a series of tones across the Rodney and Waitakere ward areas. But if a local tsunami struck, it could hit so quickly there wouldn't be time to activate these emergency measures, according to GNS Science senior tsunami scientist Dr William Power.
