Due to lack of communication, one man lost his life at Mahebourg on Saturday 120507. He went fishin wiz some friends. Mammoth waves turned upside down their boat n M. Babooa lost his life, leavin his wife with a new born n a child.
Who is responsible for that?
The Police, the Cyclone and Other Disasters Committee (CODC) or the Met services? The latter say that the not-up-to-date equipment they have at Vacoas is under repair, meaning that they didnt have any device to detect those tides.
The Police say that they were not informed about this by the Meteorological services.
The president of the CODC was ‘surpris d’apprendre, par la radio’ that Mauritius was hit by tidal waves. Only then the CODC had a meetin n ’emergency measures’ were finalised.
No Gentlemen, it not your fault at all. Its rather our bad luck that we ve got incompetent people at these posts. You are not to be blamed, it s our fault that we r born in Mauritius not in Reunion Island. The latter was informed by Meteo France.
Shame on our services.
