Earth shakes!

There was a quake yesterday at GMT 0315hrs 1014 kms to the nord east of Port Louis. According to the USGS (US Geological Survey), the event did not generate tidal waves and there was no tsunami warning. The earth in Mauritius and Rodrigues did not shake in the aftermath. There is a concern from the head of the public service commission(and also the president of the Central Cyclone & other National Disasters Committee)  that the  meteorological station should have informed the population about this matter(despite that no real threats took place). The head of the PSC did not appreciate the fact that as head of the committee no information was communicated to him in the first place.  On the meteorological side, Mr Suresh Boodhoo insisted on the frequent and low scale quake and that should a major threat arise, the authorities concerned will be informed accordingly.

    Nevertheless, I think that we should have been informed through an official communique.

    Anyway, the meteorological services are never predictable! lol
