Warnings cancelled for New Zealand

NZ tsunami warning cancelled


May 4, 2006

New Zealand has been removed from the list of countries under threat of a tsumami after an earthquake measuring 8.1 hit the Tonga islands on Thursday.

The US Geological Survey (USGS) Web site had earlier issued a tsunami warning for the Pacific Rim including Fiji and New Zealand.

A tsunami warning was initially issued for Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand but that has since been amended.

It's still not known if a tsunami has been generated, but warnings are still in place for Tonga, Niue, American Samoa, Samoa, Wallis Futuna and Fiji.
