India to soon begin forecasting reach of tsunami waves in-land 6.5.2018 General News
India would now be able to foretell the distance a destructive sea wave would travel after it breaches the coast, a prediction that can greatly reduce loss of life and property. The Indian National Centre for Ocean Information Services, under the Ministry of Earth Sciences, has developed a model to predict how far sea water would travel after violating natural boundaries, INCOIS Director SSC Shenoi said. This would be a Level-3 alert under India's Tsunami Early Warning System, put in place after the deadly 2004 tsunami. The Level-1 tracks the magnitude of a tsunami and Level-2 generates an alert about a potential tsunami and wave height.

Meteorology: powered by scientific advancements 26.3.2018 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Thirteen years ago, on December 24, 2004, over 2,30,000 lives across 14 countries bordering the Indian Ocean were swept away. The devastating tsunami also caused huge damages to property in the affected countries. The reason of this tsunami was attributed to a major earthquake that measured 9.3 in the Richter scale. Until then, not many around the world recognised or had even heard of the word tsunami since it had occurred only about five or six times over the last few centuries. Literally meaning harbour wave in the Japanese language, the word now refers to a large wave in the ocean, usually caused by an earthquake or volcanic eruption. Apart from the sheer magnitude, what made matters worse about the 2004 tsunami was our lack of preparedness. None of the affected countries had any system for early warning of such tsunamis, nor was there a plan for emergency response.
