KASARAGOD: In the backdrop of the catastrophes like the recent Tsunami that devastated parts of Japan, a senior Geological Survey of India (GSI) scientist has warned people of the need to exercise utmost vigil against possible recurrence of such natural calamities.
“The region stretching from Gujarat to Himalayas is prone to high-intensity quake although one could not make exact forecast of such natural calamities,” C. Jayaprakash, a GSI scientist based in Mangalore said while delivering the Prof. T.C. Madhava Panicker Endowment lecture here on Thursday.
“By taking adequate precautions , we can considerably reduce the possible lose of life in case calamities like tsunami strikes along the densely-populated Indian coastal belts,” he said at the function hosted by the Government College here. He underscored the need for evolving a systematic rescue-and-relief-operation module to tackle such situations.
