A tsunami threatens Christchurch, Wellington and Chatham Islands on the east coast of New Zealand after a magnitude 7.8 quake struck some 95km from Christchurch. The tsunami arrived in the northeastern coast two hours after the quake, with waves of two meters high. Thousands of people have been evacuated from their homes. Others have offered people safe beds on social media. Christchurch was hit by a tsunami in 2011, cause 185 deaths.
Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.
