Shake­Out drill

The Southland Times - - News -

The New Zealand Shake­Out na­tion­wide earth­quake drill and tsunami hikoi will take place on Thurs­day. So far, 780,000 Ki­wis are signed up for the Shake­Out, which will take place at 9.30am. All of New Zealand is at risk of earth­quakes and all of its coast­line is at risk of a tsunami. The New Zealand Shake­Out is held to re­mind peo­ple of the right ac­tion to take dur­ing an earth­quake – drop, cover, hold – and to prac­tise their tsunami h¯ıkoi (evac­u­a­tion) if they are in a coastal area.
