KATHMANDU — The National Academy of Science and Technology (NAST) has installed earthquake early warning sensors, known as seismic sensors, in four different places in the Kathmandu Valley on the first anniversary of the Gorkha earthquake.

The sirens would alert people as much as 10-20 seconds before a major earthquake.

The NAST, an autonomous apex body under the Ministry of Science and Technology, installed the sirens at Khumaltar, Kirtipur, Godawari and Sinamangal, according to Dr Suresh Kumar Dhungel, Chief of Faculty of Technology at NAST.

He told RSS that sirens will disseminate information on quake occurred within the 80 kilo metres of range of the installation.

The sirens installed were provided by Institute of Care Life in China. “NAST is going to install more of such sirens in other places across the nation provided the government supports the initiative,” Dr Dhungel said.

NAST has chosen to install one seismic siren in its premises, whereas another in Central Department of Geology at Tribhuwan University in Kirtipur.

Similarly, installed among the sirens were one at Bhrikuti Hotel at Godawari and Sourya School at Singamangal.

NAST, following the 7.6-magnitude Gorkha Earthquake in April 25, 2015, had agreed to install 120 early warning sensors, covering one-third of the country.

Saurya School’s Principal Bhimang Limbu shared that with the installation of seismic siren, the public, parents, teachers and people in the surrounding were hopeful of early warning information.
