India: Gurgaon to get NCR's first quake warning system

23 Jun 2016, Times of India, the

An earthquake early warning system, designed to detect seismic waves and blare a warning precious seconds before the temblor strikes, will be installed in Gurgaon next week, making it the first city in NCR to be equipped with such a device. But it will take some more time for it to act as a public warning system because the government is yet to procure public alarms.
