Indian Natural Hazard Map tracked Tsunami seven years ago
Kolkata, Jan. 4. (PTI): The possible epicentre of the killer Tsunami and the probable path that the waves would take had been precisely tracked on the Indian Natural Hazard Map seven years ago.
Director of the National Atlas and Thematic Mapping Organisation (NATMO), Dr G N Saha, said on Monday the map, made by NATMO in the late nineties, had shown the possible epicentre in Indonesia and Tsunami waves travelling to hit the Andaman and Nicobar Islands as well as the southern Indian coast.
"Though this was no prediction of any sort, it just showed theoretically what would happen if an earthquake of high intensity in Indonesia triggered off a Tsunami," he said.
