Ahmedabad: Gujarat government's Institute of Seismological Research (ISR) is all set to come up with an earthquake early warning and prediction system to avoid loss of lives and property during such a calamity in the state.  

Gujarat had witnessed one of the most horrific earthquakes on January 26, 2001, taking the toll of more than 10,000 lives, in Kutch and a loss of the properties worth in crores, which was the main reason to come with this idea of early warning system.

“We are setting up an early warning system that can predict earthquake when it takes place at its epicentre and with its help we can give an alert around 30 seconds before the tremors reach other places,” Director General at ISR, B K Rastogi told PTI
