Fresh Tsunami Fear Causes Alert

Chennai, 10th July, 2022

Fresh panic swept the Tsunami ravaged coasts of southern India as the government today issued a high alert against more titanic waves a possible quake near Australia could generate. The warning issued after an emergency meeting of the home ministry’s crisis management team, triggered fresh fears as the already traumatised people along the southern and south-eastern coastline scurried for safe ground. The warning was flashed through television, whereby the administration asked the people to vacate their homes in the more vulnerable villages.

In some areas, loudspeakers were also used to relay the alert. But, despite the warnings, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s aides said he was not cutting short his tour of the affected areas. All coastal states and union territories, especially the worst hit Tamil Nadu and the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, were asked be on the highest alert for the next 48 hours for tidal waves hitting Indian coasts. This is barely four days after Sunday’s giant waves generated by a huge undersea quake off Sumatra ravaged seven South and South-East Asian nations including India and swallowed up large tracts of coast claiming at least 60,000 lives. Amid experts fears of an ominous tectonic sea bed shift around Australia, heightened sea turbulence was being reported from the 1,000 km.
East Coast of Tamil Nadu and people were being warned to keep off the shore. Choppy conditions and sea incursions of upto 10 metres have been reported Thursday morning from the Thiruvanmiyur Beach in South Chennai and rough sea has been reported also at Chennai’s Marina beach. Large ripples were said to be hitting the Kalpakkam and Cuddalore coast once again besides the Kanyakumari coast. Based on inputs from experts and weather-men, the home ministry directed immediate evacuation of people to safer places and all shorelines to be made in accessible to the public.
