No Emergency

There are no current emergencies, and the Civil Defence Emergency Operation Centre has not been activated. When there is an emergency or the Civil Defence Emergency Operation Centre has been activated this page will display that and provide information to assist with the type of emergency.



GNS estimate the probability of a magnitude 7.8+ earthquake in the coming year is approximately 5% - due to on-going slow-slipevents.  This risk is about 6 times greater than it was before the Kaikoura Earthquake. Hawke's Bay needs to continue to be prepared for earthquakes and tsunami.  

Check out the new Red Cross Hazard App - with updates for HB & elsewhere.
