MAKE THIS METHOD TO BECOME MORE OPERATIONAL

Existing research centers at selected places in the country / world those receiving constant sunlight throughout the year, to adopt this method and interlink each other to continue the prediction to pin point the epi center in advance.

The period of occurrence is varying from 3 to 130 hours after prediction (normally it happens between 12 to 100 hours). So no one can sit idle with panic and wait for such a long time. To overcome this, we may obtain and utilise suitable data collection from Satellite / GPS etc., apart from watching anomaly behavior of pet animals or animals at Zoo and alert the people by sounding local sirens, during the period announced. Accordingly suitable warning may be given through TV / RADIO depending upon the situation.
