“The Government has ordered a review after deeming New Zealand’s response to yesterday’s tsunami ‘not good enough’.

“Civil Defence Minister John Carter said the review would look into the way the Civil Defence and Emergency Management ministry deals with tsunami alerts.

“Generally, the response to yesterday’s tsunami warning was pretty good, but there are concerning reports about the ways in which some information was communicated to the public.

“Frankly, that is not good enough,” he said in a statement today.”
