New Tsunami Alert in Tamilnadu, Kerala and Andamans !!!

Thursday, December 30, 2004 (Thiruvananthapuram):

Panic gripped the coastal belt of Nagapattinam with the Met office informing of yet another tsunami striking the district today.

Officials evacuated people from coastal belts and asked them not to go anywhere near the sea.

Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa, who is supposed to visit Akkaraipettai fishing hamlet, has cancelled her visit at the last moment.

Thanjavur District Collector J Radkrishnan, who is overseeing the relief operations in the district, asked the residents of Akkaraipettai to evacuate immediately.

Water levels have reportedly risen in Puttupet near Chennai.

Turbulent waves

The Kerala government has also asked the people along the coast to remain alert as there were possibilities of high waves striking again.

Chief Minister Oommen Chandy said the government had information from the Central agencies that the sea could turn turbulent by noon.

An alert has also been sounded in the Andaman and Nicobar islands. A mini tsunami may strike the islands at noon. (With PTI inputs)
