Minimize Tolaga Bay, New Zealand

This Flock-1 image captures the idyllic community of Tolaga Bay in New Zealand and was captured on 11 September 2016.

A calm day in New Zealand was disturbed by an off coast 7.1 magnitude earthquake. Tolaga Bay is surrounded by shallow waters.

This combined with the distinctive shape of the seaside cliffs, which have the potential to channel and focus waves immediately in front of the town, meant that Tolaga Bay was put on emergency tsunami watch.
