Mumbai has successfully tested its first Tsunami early warning system siren in South Mumbai. The siren system has a digital electronic board that gives out data about the approaching tsunami. The siren has a radical range of 3 kms in all directions and it gives continuous hoot for one minute. The system is installed at the Meteorology Office of Western Naval Command by Indian National Centre for Ocean Information Services (INCOIS), an autonomous organisation under Ministry of Earth & Sciences (MoES), GoI. The siren will be connected to and remotely controlled by INCOIS, Hyderabad. India started its own interim tsunami warning centre in the first quarter of 2005 after the devastating tsunami of December 26, 2004.
