Be pre­pared

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

With heavy weather fore­cast to hit this weekend on the back of trop­i­cal cy­clone Lusi, the coast­guard has some ad­vice to help keep boat­ies safe. Coast­guard’s Neil Mur­ray says it is likely much of the coun­try will en­counter some se­vere weather which may in­clude heavy rain, se­vere gales, large waves and ab­nor­mally high tides. As with all cy­clones or trop­i­cal storms there is still a de­gree of un­cer­tainty re­gard­ing Lusi’s track. This will dic­tate the ex­act dis­tri­bu­tion and ex­tent of any se­vere weather over the coun­try but will be­come more ac­cu­rate to fore­cast as it ap­proaches New Zealand. Boat­ies are asked to keep mon­i­tor­ing the sit­u­a­tion and the ad­vice from Metser­vice. Whether you are berthed on a swing moor­ing, in a ma­rina, or parked in a boat yard, all boat­ies can visit boat­inge­d­u­ca­tion.org.nz for in­for­ma­tion on how best to pre­pare for po­ten­tial bad weather.
