Sirens to warn of tsunamis

CD Sirens to warn of tsunamis

"Whangamata is to get warning sirens in response to research showing the peninsula's vulnerability to a tsunami.

But Thames-Coromandel Mayor Philippa Barriball said the sirens would be effective only if a tsunami came from far away.

The council has agreed to set aside $20,000 towards putting sirens at the northern and southern ends of the town, at its water reservoirs."
