Hyderabad, Oct 14 (UNI) Union Minister of State for Science and Technology Kapil Sibal will formally inaugurate a Tsunami Warning Centre, set up at the Indian National Centre for Ocean Information Services (INCOIS), here tomorrow.

National Disaster Management Authority member M Shashidhar Reddy, MLA, said in a statement here the facility, recently made operational, would enhance the country's capability to issue timely warnings and alerts for tsunami.

This was amply demonstrated last month when INCOIS issued a tsunami warning at 1705 hrs, just 25 minutes after an earthquake hit Indonesia on September 12 this year.

He appreciated the work of the nation's scientists, especially the team at INCOIS, in this regard.
