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.

If the Tsunami was predicted to happen seven years ago, the people would know there was going to be a tsunami... Why didnt they send out a tsunami warning, then? That's ridiculous...

Anonymous 1: I "predict" there will be a tsunami hitting the East coast of the U.S. .. somewhere in the future. Sooo .. I guess the residents of that coast have to be warned right now! What do you think they'll do with such a warning?

why isn't anyone addressing the possibility of HAARP or other electromagnetic man made earthquakes? What about the "bomb'?
