How to use our web Information & Emergency Situation Map

Did you know that our situation map is loaded with useful information about specific hazards in Southland?

  • By simply clicking on the icon that looks like a stack of papers, “Layers List” (see fig 1) you get to open the layers feature which allows you to activate different layers on the map.
  • By ticking e.g. Tsunami Evacuation Zones (fig 2), you will see the map update with evacuation zones.
  • Zoom into the Invercargill/Riverton area and you will see the evacuation zones (fig 3).
  • Untick a layer to remove it from the map. This feature is very handy if you want to zoom in a specific area and get more useful information.

Click on the “Legend” icon (right of Layers icon see fig 4) and find out what all the symbols mean on the map.

Three years and more than 28,500 aftershocks later, Kaikōura has been forever changed. The landslides, river changes, and uplifted coastlines are the most obvious impacts of the M7.8 quake – but there are thousands of people whose daily lives are still affected, and we’re thinking of you today.

Yes when it's just happened it's very newsworthy but they never go back to let folk know the heartbreak still going on years later
