Thailand to stage tsunami drill

On Monday, the centre practiced the drill before the full scale one at 79 locations tomorrow, Bernama reported quoting a spokesman of the Information and Communication Technology Minister.

A similar drill will be conducted at a later date in the country’s Gulf of Thailand provinces, where 48 warning towers have been installed.

Thailand’s six Andaman coastal provinces were hit by the 26 December tsunami in 2004. More than 5,000 local residents and Thai and foreign holidaymakers lost their lives in the twin tidal waves.
