Where is the tsunami tidal wave storm flood surge early warning system for the North Atlantic like the international warning system that exists in the Pacfic ?
Just because tsunami are rare in the Indian Ocean, the recent disaster there shows that we should not be complacent in Europe. There are active volcanoes waiting to explode or collapse into the sea, and earthquake zones in the seas and oceans around Europe, and the resultant tsunami can travel for thousands of miles.
There are lots of weather satellites and military systems watching the North Atlantic, but are any of them coordinated properly with local coast guards and the mass media to actually issue a warning of a forthcoming tidal wave in sufficient time to save lives ?
Can flood warning systems designed to cope with flooding caused by slow moving hurricanes etc. actually react speedily enough ?
What is the Civil Contingencies Secretariat doing about this ?
Where is the Digitally Signed and Authenticated system of alerts and emergency evacuation orders which is needed to save lives, in any of the fast moving natural disaster or terrorist or military incident scenarios which the Civil Contingencies Act 2004 is supposed to deal with ? How can you tell if such a warning is real or a hoax ?
Will any of our politicians or journalists bother to find out ?
