Thread: Klaxons at Changi Beach

  1. #1

    Default Klaxons at Changi Beach

    Was out with the wife and dog at the Changi Coastal Walk (low tide, it's lotsa fun) beach just off the NSRCC when we heard the sound of klaxons
    Could have sworn we heard announcements later, one male followed by another female voice but it was impossible to make out what they were saying
    We looked out to the other beach goers but no one seemed perturbed and went about their merry business - two other families with young kids scouring the sand
    Anyone know what they were sounding out for?
    My guess was inclement weather but it was only cloudy, no rain yet
    -------------------------------
    Endure. In enduring grow strong.

    Should be the the Lighting Detection and Early Warning System at NSRCC.
