PHUKET: The National Disaster Warning Center (NDWC) has denied local government reports that tsunami warning towers mistakenly sounded the alarm yesterday morning.

However, the Phuket governor and top officials at Kamala and Mai Khao have confirmed that tsunami alarm towers went off at around 10am yesterday, causing people in the area to panic.

“More than a hundred people on Nai Yang Beach panicked when the alarm went off,” said Sarawut Srisakukarm, president of the Mai Khao Tambon Administration Organization (TAO).

“Normally I get advanced messages about tsunami and earthquake alarms [being sounded], but this time I got nothing – they just started sounding.
