Easterly winds to be around until tomorrow

Easterly winds to be around until tomorrow

There will still be high winds and seas around the east coast of the Coromandel until Saturday.

The MetService wind warnings are no longer in place for the Coromandel, however the winds are still easterly and up around the 30 knots and potentially gusting up to 45 knots on Saturday.

Coastal erosion is likely to be exacerbated over the next few days along the Coromandel east coast due to the sustained easterly wave event. TCDC staff members are working on sand push ups between high and low tides in Buffalo and Brophy's Beaches in Whitianga, where coastal erosion is a higher risk.

If you need any help, the TCDC customer service phone line is manned 24/7 on 07 868 0200.

High tide times for the Whitianga area are as follows:
Friday 11th                              17:35      
Saturday 12th                          05:48      
Saturday 12th                          18:30
