Another large earthquake has hit New Zealand.

A 7.5 earthquake hit the South Island, at Cheviot near Christchurch, just after midnight. Multiple quakes have since followed in both islands.

Talkback Radio has been hot on the topic of alerting, or more to the point, the lack thereof.

This week we are beginning a campaign to promote the use of TSUNADO as the best method of alerting the public when such disasters occur. This was in response to MCDEM issuing a statement that they were only supporting systems based on the cellular network. TSUNADO disagrees with this approach, as it was an option written off early on in the development of the TSUNADO System as being too fragile, to unreliable, and too costly.
