(11/20/2006)

Formal construction has commenced on Bali's tsunami early warning system with the erection of warning stations in six locations along the South Island's most popular beach fronts.

The location of the six early warning centers, each equipped with massive sirens connected to an international wave and seismic sensing system, are:

• Sanur Beach in front of the Inna Grand Bali Beach Hotel.

• Kedongan Beach near Jimbaran

• Within the Nusa Dua Complex operated by the Bali Tourism Development Corporation

• Tanjung Benoa Beach

• Kuta Beach

• Seminyak Beach in front of Double Six.

Each warning station is made of reinforced concrete measuring 5 x 5 meters housing monitoring equipment and supporting a siren weighing 300-400 kilograms suspended atop a 15 meter high tower.

Although the tsunami warning centers are still some weeks from completion, local press reports indicate that the equipment to be installed in the facilities has already arrived on the Island.

Tsunami Drills Set for December 26, 2006

In anticipation of the completion of Bali's tsunami early warning system, the Indonesian Minister of Research and Technology is planning a coordinated tsunami drill in Bali on December 26, 2006.

With training underway to involve 85 key players in Bali's safety services, the training will focus on understanding the nature of earthquakes and tsunamis, managing disaster situations, and building capacity for handling future emergencies.

According to the training coordinator, Karkunti P. Rahayu, quoted on Temp Interaktif, "the goal (of the training) is to minimalize the number victims in the event an actual tsunami occurs."

Training will include both the theoretical study of earthquakes and tsunamis as well as simulated emergency scenarios.

With simulation drills timed to coincide with the anniversary boxing day tsunami disaster of December 26, 2004, the Bali drills will provide an opportunity to test the newly installed sires, seismic and oceanographic detection systems and special digital radio links.

The actual drill will commence with a simulated disaster broadcast on Bali's TV and radio stations followed by a drill emphasizing evacuation and rescue efforts.

The center for the December 26, 2006 drill will be at Sindhu Beach in Sanur, in the area surrounding the now-under-construction early warning tsunami system shown on balidiscovery.com.
