Shaun Tepania, principal of the coastal Whananaki school in Whananaki, north of Whangarei, has said that the staff and students are at a safe point after being evacuated from the school at 8:45am this morning.

He said the students are "absolutely fine" and the atmosphere is relatively calm. "We're sitting up overlooking the estuary. It all seems okay for the time being, but the tide is going out when it is supposed to be coming in, which we have all been discussing."

He said it's a "surreal experience" but "everybody is calm and okay."

Here's the latest update from the National Emergency Management Agency:
GNS Science has advised that the largest waves have now passed, and therefore the threat level is now downgraded to a Beach and Marine threat for all areas which were previously under Land and Marine threat.

All people who evacuated can now return.

The advice remains, for all areas under beach and marine threat, to stay off beach and shore areas.

Has reached Norfolk Island.

Yikes.

My parents are on Norfolk island right now. Woke to messages from concerned friends and family, and a voicemail from my dad, ironically sounded like he was under water. I have not heard back from them. I am not concerned as I know the Norfolk is not really at sea level.

So I just hacked my parents emails, and found the name of their hotel and called.

All is well, the receptionist knew who they were and the people they were travelling and they are apparently out galivanting around the island.
