tsunamis in Wellington?

Hi there
I was out gallivanting around Miramar recently and I came upon a tsunami escape route sign.  Leading up a hill naturally.  It's a wee bit frightening to think about.

When a civil defence woman knocked on my door some time back and asked if I had an escape route, I said "Sure, get in my car and shoot on up the hill behind my house."

"Do you have an electric garage door?" She asked.

"Yes."  I could see where this was going.  If an earthquake preceded a tidal wave, I might not be able to get my car out of the garage.  I would have to grab a bag that I could carry, instead of emptying practically the entire contents of my house into my car.

Oh dear.
