New Zealand’s earthquake planning includes awareness of the risk of tsunami. The possibility of a large tsunami event occurring in Marlborough is considered very unlikely. However if there was a major event, the consequences could be catastrophic.

The most serious tsunami would be one originating close at hand with arrival times of less than three hours. People in coastal communities should be aware of what to do and where to go in such an event.
Council staff - including a hazard expert and a member of the emergency management team – will be holding open days in our communities at to talk about the extent of the hazard, what the signs are that one may be coming, and what you need to do to avoid it.

The open days are an opportunity for people to learn about tsunami hazards, and the risks for the Rarangi, Havelock, Picton, Marlborough Sounds and Blenheim communities. This is also a chance to talk to our emergency staff about managing this risk
