New Zealand issued a national tsunami warning after three major earthquakes struck off the east coast of the country’s North Island in the early hours of March 5, 2021. The largest quake measured at a magnitude of 8.1 was followed by several others including two at magnitude 7.2 and 7.4. People living in areas along the east coast on the country’s North Island were warned to “move immediately”. The National Emergency Management Agency encouraged people to find higher ground and move inland. The warnings were lifted after the largest waves passed later in the morning.
