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, β€œLayers 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 β€œLegend” icon (right of Layers icon see fig 4) and find out what all the symbols mean on the map.

Earthquake for Milford Sound, 6.3 magnitude at 10.35pm, 20km NW of Milford Sound.
The Milford Fire and Emergency team have been activated and are investigating, but we have no reports of any damage or injuries at this stage.

Update: GNS have downgraded this to a 5.5, things are calming down a little in Milford - everyone a little shaken up, but OK.
