Phuket to hold Tsunami drill in April

Since recent earthquakes have continuously occurred in many countries such as Haiti, Philippines, Chile and others, Wichai Praisa-ngob, the Governor of Phuket, commented that Phuket should be prompt in case of any disasters occurring, by conducting drills for coping with tsunamis and evacuations, which will help people to be more aware about potential disasters and assure tourists that islanders know how to cope in the situations. He said a drill is going to be held in April. He had assigned related officers to check if all 19 tsunami alarms are working, so if a tsunami occurs, people can know one hour in advance.
