Mauritians are ready for the Tsunami

Mauritians are ready for the Tsunami!!!

On Monday March the 28th, at approximately 22.30hrs. the first Tsunami alarm was raised in Mauritius and also on the world TV channels. In no time, the Mauritians got organised for a swift evacuation from the coastal areas. The local TV and radio stations alerted the locals non stop from the above time till 4am. It was forecasted that the high waves would hit our island between 1 to 4 am, as soon as the alarm was raised; the inhabitants around the beach areas were on the move. Friends and relatives from high plateau started phoning their close ones in the threatened locations to spend the night with them. The streets were swamped with people running and carrying their personal belongings like TVs, beds, furniture, fridges, radios etc.

By midnight, all the coastal areas were like ghost towns and needless to say that some burglars took advantage of the unfortunate situation. The police and Coast guards patrolled the areas to ensure that no one stayed in the danger zones. That event was a clear indication of the Mauritians’ solidarity. Casts, colours and religions were overlooked, and finally there was only the true Mauritianism in action. We must be proud of our nation, considering how our selfish politicians try to split apart.

Although Mauritius, Madagascar and the Seychelles have called off tsunami alerts issued after a powerful earthquake hit the Indonesian island of Sumatra, concerns remain over the preparedness of Africa's Indian Ocean island countries to handle large-scale disasters.

Tsunami warnings were triggered in the three island states after the quake measuring 8.7 on the Richter scale struck late Monday off Indonesia's west coast, but government officials withdrew the alerts early on Tuesday, as meteorologists confirmed the seismic activity had not triggered outsized waves.


Last December an earthquake off the Indonesian island of Aceh generated a tsunami that hit 13 countries in the Indian Ocean rim, leaving more than 200,000 people dead.

"It's safe to say the earthquake did not trigger a tsunami this time as it would have hit by now, but even though we've cancelled the alerts, we are still monitoring the situation very closely," Mauritius Meteorological Services director, Sok Appadu, told IRIN.

He said the national weather service had sent out tsunami alerts to the coastal regions, as well as the remote islands of Rodrigues and Agalega in the Mauritius group.

"As soon as we received the news from the seismologists in the United States that the earthquake had hit Sumatra, we immediately issued warnings advising people to stay away from the shoreline. The port authority and media also helped a great deal to disseminate the alerts to tourists and fisherman," Appadu said.

Mauritius was better prepared to deal with the threat of a tsunami, he pointed out, because the December crisis had increased awareness of the need to strengthen emergency measures to cope with natural disasters.

"After the loss of life in December [in Asia] there has definitely been more emphasis on disaster preparedness. There is now a network of communication in place, which involves provincial and local authorities as well as community leaders," Appadu said.

"This means, at any given time there is someone who can be contacted in case of an impending disaster, but we still have a long way to go to ensure that a robust tsunami early warning system is in place for the Indian Ocean region. Right now, the system we have is quite fragile, as we depend on information sent via email from Japan and the US - sometimes the computers are down and it is difficult to access important information.L.N.
