Mobile phones can be used as a means of warning about a looming tsunami
Mobile phones can be used as a means of warning about a looming tsunami. This is the opinion that Yuri Brazhnikov, the director of the department for international activities of the Russian Emergencies Ministry, expressed Monday at a RIA Novosti press conference. In his opinion, all the available opportunities of mobile communications should be studied. "The coverage of the mobile communications is very wide and it should be used to warn local residents and tourists of possible calamities," said Mr. Brazhnikov. In his words, tourists arriving at places where large-scale natural disasters can happen should receive instructions that would either include signals, images, or international SMS codes warning about a possible tsunami 20-30 minutes in advance. According to him, such a system of early warning about accidents will help reduce the death toll of such calamities. Besides, Mr. Brazhnikov said, seismic observations should be carefully analyzed and become available to many through the Internet.
