Update Fri, 5 Mar 2021, 12:06

Source changed to USGS

As most agencies put the quake magnitude close to 8, while only Geonet only lists it as a much lower magnitude 7.1 event, we decided to trust USGS as primary data source with a magnitude of 8.1.

Tsunami warning raised again after third powerful earthquake hit off the coast of North Island, NZ

A third powerful earthquake hit off the coast of North Island, New Zealand on Friday, 5 March 2021, 7:28 am local time. This magnitude 8.1 quake occurred near the Kermadec Islands about 880 km north of New Zealand, at a depth of 20-24 km.
Although this quake was not felt much in the nearby North Island, the New Zealand National Emergency Management Agency urged people in some areas to head for higher ground. A tsunami warning was raised over several coastal areas of both North and South Island, New Zealand.

The warning was lifted later that day, at around 1:40 pm local time. According to the latest tsunami threat message from the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center, tsunami waves were measured as far as the French Polynesia more than 3000 km northeast of the earthquake's epicenter. The northern coast of New Zealand's North Island was hit by tsunami waves of about 0.16 meters high, i.e., only 16 centimeters. The areas hit include the coasts from North Cape to East Cape.
No significant damage has been reported.

According to the United States Geological Survey (USGS ), the earthquake resulted from a reverse faulting in the Tonga-Kermadec subduction zone at a depth of about 22 km. USGS was also able to identify the earlier 7.4 quake as a foreshock preceding this quake by nearly 2 hours. The first of the three major earthquakes, which occurred 6 hours prior the second quake, did not directly cause the second and third quakes.
