  1. 1. The New Zealandearthquake and the tsunami warning s1180212 Taisuke Kasai
  2. 2. About the the earthquake the Kermadec in of New Zealand● the New Zealand earthquake happened in Kamadec islands region of NewZealand at 19:03 GMT on Wednesday.● The quake was centered 161km east of Raoul island of the Kermadec Islands and so on.● The epicenter was at a depth of 20 km.● The earthquake were measure 7.6 on the Richter scale but no damage have been repoted so far.
  3. 3. The information catched the U.S. Tsunami Warning Center● The U.S. Pacific Tsunami Warning Center has issued a non-expanding regical tsunami warning for the Kermadec Islands, New Zealand and the Pacific nation of Tonga.● The center said "the tsunami may have been destructive along coastlines of the region near the earthquake epicenter."
  4. 4. The action in the New Zealand● New Zealands Civil Defense has warned people in New Zealands Nothern plenty regions such as East Coast and Hawkes bay of a tsunami.● The National Crisis Management Center has been activated and Civil Defense said the first wave to arrive will reach the New Zealand at 8:52 a.m. on Thursday.● The Civil Defense said people in coastal area, stay of the beach, escape from reached a tsunami.
  5. 5. The wave reaching New Zealands Kermadec Islands● The height of the wave reaching New Zealands Kermadec Islands and having is between 60cm and 1 meter tall.● East cape will be the first place to be able to see the wave at about 8:52 a.m., North Cape st 8:54 a.m. and Gisborne at 8:59 a.m..● And then it is expected to arrive in Auckland at about 10 a.m..
  6. 6. The thing being beyond expectation● Civil Defense didnt expect a strong tsunami and found a wall of water enough to endure the tsunami.● The first wave may not be largest but waves will continue for several hours.● The Karmadic Islands have no permanent population and only small New Zealand Department of Conservation team on Raoul island.
  7. 7. My feeling to read this article (1)● The tsunami warning from New Zealands Civil Defense is best warning.● But New Zealands Civil Defence hadnt supposed a such tsunami will come the Karmadic Islands.● Because of it, the Karmadic Islands hadnt prepared countermesures against a such tsunami and had a countermeasures headquarters.
  8. 8. My feeling to read this article (2)● The Kermadec Islands had needed the wall of water enough to endure a strong tsunami and a countermeasures headquarters against a strong tsunami.● In case of the Tohoku earthquake, damage of the tsunami coming Japan is as dangerous as the tsunami coming the Kermadic Islands.● Because, The tsunami hadnt estimated by their country own in both of the cases.
