Here in New Zealand, we received a Tsunami warning on Sunday 28th February. The funny thing was I was attending a cousins wedding on Waiheke Island, just outside of Auckland, and on that morning we were having breakfast at a cafe right in front of the beach !! The police came around and started evacuating everyone on the beach, put up warning signs and blocked the roads. At this stage we were a little worried after previous Tsunamis around the world, and we were wondering if we should start heading for high ground. The police were saying nothing to us. I mean around us no one was moving, we had paid for breakfast, and Tsunami or no Tsunami, we had to get our money's worth ! However one of my Aunts had an iPhone with internet access and she shortly discovered that there had been an earthquake in Chile, and a Tsunami warning had been issued to some of the Pacific Islands and countries. Now we were a little more than worried, and were beginning to think we should just slowly get up, no sudden moves, and slowly and gradually make our way to higher ground. We didn't want to panic anyone after all. Luckily later on another report appeared on the Internet and said the wave would be only a meter high at maximum. So a meter high wave would knock you off your feet on the beach, but we were higher than a meter at the cafe above water level, so we continued eating our breakfast. This is probably why the police did not ask us to move along before. Thankfully we had an iPhone amongst us, and this certainly saved a lot of unnecessary panic. Edit. Changed date to correct date.
