East of East Cape 4.2, Colombia 6.2, NW of Auckland Island 4.9. 12 March. Kermadecs 4.9. This forecast worked well. Steady driving conditions resulted in ongoing White Island/East Cape action on 8 March and some late action early on 11 March, including to the south of New Zealand. Global locations were not a success. The Colombia 6.2 was in the mountains as hoped and not in the sea but too far north to be a location success. Volcanoes are still ticking over.
