Mumbai: Tsunami warning system siren maiden trial today


Mumbai: Nearly 11 years after the Boxing Day tsunami, in which more than 10,000 lives were lost in India, Mumbai on Monday will test its first Tsunami early warning system siren that will give a 10-minute alert.

The newly installed ‘Tsunami Early Warning System Siren’ will be tested at noon today between 12:00-12:10 pm near INS Angre, off Reserve Bank of India head office in south Mumbai.

The system is installed at the Meteorology Office of Western Naval Command by Indian National Centre for Ocean Information Services (INCOIS), an autonomous organisation under Ministry of Earth & Sciences (MoES), Government of India. (ANI)
