Yes, it’s Friday here in New Zealand, and there’s good news and there’s bad. Our Covid levels have dropped 1, so while Auckland is at Level 2 (operating with restrictions) the remainder of New Zealand is Level One, operating with caution, contact tracing etc. The new normal.
The bad news is there’s currently a tsunami warning out for the coastal areas of the middle to upper north Island. Large areas have been evacuated following a m. 8.1 earthquake in the Kermadec Islands. It’s been downgraded but is still in force for the east coast. The Kermadec quake followed a smaller cluster off the East Cape earlier in the morning.
Now, let’s have something to cheer us up…
Have a wonderful weekend everyone. Stay safe, stay calm, read a book!
