Malaysia is Well Prepared

According to this report, Malaysia has a well implemented standard operating procedure (SOP) in dealing with the threat of tsunami. Malaysia has set up the National Tsunami Early Warning System (SAATNM) where all of the relevant authorities will be issued warnings through SMS gateway and a Fixed Line Alert System to agencies dealing with disaster management, the public and the media within 15 minutes of receiving the data.

Hopefully, the agency had my mobile number in their system in case they had to issue such a warning. But we prayed that such disaster will never happen to all of us.
