Significance Of The World Tsunami Day 2020!
Amidst all the changes taking place, people are sensitized to the uproar of nature, such as natural disasters. Keeping this in mind, the United Nations General Assembly tasked the UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR?) to observe 05th November as World Tsunami Awareness Day? to promote global awareness of tsunamis. Although tsunamis are rare, good planning can save lives and infrastructure.
What Are Tsunamis?
There are two types of tsunamis warnings:
- Official Warnings: These warnings are generally broadcasted through radio, television and other mediums. The Tsunami Early Warning Centre is at the Indian National Centre for Ocean Information Services (INCOIS) in Hyderabad. One of the Indian Ocean Tsunami Warning and Mitigation System (IOTWMS) is in Telangana.
- Natural Warnings: These warnings would be a strong earthquake, a roar from the ocean and unusual ocean behaviour.
