Waikato regional hazards portal

The regional council holds information on natural hazards that you can access from their Waikato Regional Hazards Portal. You can use the map to zoom into the area you want to look at and then click through the hazard tabs to see which natural hazards are present in your area and what this means. Also on the portal is the Coastal Inundation tool, which allows you to view the effects of different sea levels resulting from storm surge and sea level rise.
