Thailand ignored tsunami alert: report

Taken from here.


Bangkok felt tremors of the Indonesia quake at 8:05 am and the Bureau was flooded with calls. In the rush to focus on the quake, the vital warning was ignored, says the Times.


The officer on duty received an email warning of the tsunami, but ignored it. He was an earthquake specialist, and didn’t even consider the possibility of a tsunami. Becase, of course, he’s only an earthquake specialist. [/sarcasm]
