PTWC work to continue design warning change

By Halitesh Datt, Fiji TV

5 July, 2013, Nadi, Fiji - The Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre will continue its work in the region says the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

NOAA, which looks after the Centre say the only change is that the region will be provided with advisories instead of warnings.

Warnings will be provided by individual country tsunami warning centres.

The Centre will continue to provide the region with important weather related data.

A decision on whether P.T.W.C will provide warnings for countries without tsunami centre of their own will be made in Russia where Pacific Tsunami System will meet in September.
