John and Barbara Gebler evacuated their Woodend home when they heard the tsunami sirens activate following November’s large quake. When they arrived in Rangiora, they joined hundreds of other people who had also fled inland.
Many were following advice broadcast over the radio and were unsure about how far the evacuation zone extended, others simply heard the sirens and decided to take a cautious approach.
John stated that everyone he talked to that night seemed confused about the right course of action.
As a result of stories like John and Barbara’s, Civil Defence are holding a series of public information evenings over February and March for residents in the Waimakariri District. They are focused on those residing in coastal communities but open to all.
These meetings will be a chance to hear the most recent advice from Civil Defence, see first-hand the tsunami risk modelling for our district and to ask any questions you may have.
