Poll: How prepared are you for a quake and tsunami?

Katie Townshend Reporter from Dominion Post

About 1000 deaths, thousands of injuries and extensive destruction from Wellington up the east coast of the North Island - this will be the result of a tsunami triggered by an 8.9 earthquake in the Hikurangi subduction zone under a scenario presented by GNS Science.
The scenario, in a report prepared for the purpose of developing a response plan, is considered serious and credible, but comes with the obvious caveat that there is no way of telling what any earthquake or tsunami would look like. How prepared are you for a quake and tsunami?

Wediboard

Nadine from Wallaceville - Whitemans Valley

Does anyone have off cuts of wediboard (blue and grey very light waterproof board used to line bathrooms before tiling) they are throwing out? Very good backing for mosaics. Not sure what it’s called in NZ and only came across it when I lived in UK but hoping someone knows what it’s called here and better still, had some they are throwing away.
