Indian Tsunami Warnings in 10-20 Minutes
The Indian Express is reporting that the Indian Tsunami Centre can now detect major earthquakes in 10 minutes and have warnings issued in 20.
The Hyderbad based center can now issue warnings over email, fax, sms, and their website – ensuring that future tsunamis formed by earthquakes will have better warning time to costal areas.
This warning system is built with the intention of avoiding a similar disaster as the 2004 incident that devastated Thailand, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, India, and other countries in the Indian Ocean.
