Understanding the different evacuation zones

The Red Zone is the beach and marine environment, and some very low lying areas. This area is the one we ask people to stay out of most often as a result of smaller tsunamis. Evacuate this area when instructed to, or immediately after any long or strong earthquake. The earthquake may be the only warning of a tsunami, so do not wait for further instructions, notifications or advice, evacuate immediately after the shaking has stopped.

The Orange Zone is the area we may evacuate for large earthquake in the Pacific, such as near South America, causing a tsunami wave of up to 5 metres at the Wellington coastline. Alerts and evacuation advice would be issued by Civil Defence and distributed to the public. Evacuate this area when instructed to, or immediately after any long or strong earthquake. The earthquake may be the only warning of a tsunami, so do not wait for further instructions, notifications or advice, evacuate immediately after the shaking has stopped.

The Yellow Zone is the self-evacuation zone which means if you feel a long or strong earthquake, then get yourself out of all zones. The earthquake may be the only warning of a tsunami, so do not wait for further instructions, notifications or advice, evacuate immediately after the shaking has stopped. This zone has been defined by modelling up to magnitude 9 earthquakes on the subduction zone to the east of the North Island, the worst case scenario modelled for the Wellington region.
