About Tsunami early warning systemTsunami early warning system is the system thatalert people living near the coastline of Tsunamibeing coming.We can escape from Tsunami because thissystem alert us that Tsunami is coming.
How the system works 1The Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre (PTWC)receive earthquake information and data from tidalgauges and Deep-ocean Assessment andReporting of Tsunamis (DART) sensors or buoys.
How the system works 2These two centres determine the size ofearthquakes, determine whether they have thepotential to produce tsunamis and predict tsunamiwave arrival times wherever possible.
How the system works 3They judge the Inland earthquakes will not causetsunamis and not all underwater earthquakescause tsunamis. This depends on the location andnature of the earthquake.
How the system works 4The two centres issue watches, if necessary, tonational bodies in the Indian Ocean and it is theresponsibility of each national agency to alert itspopulation, by whatever means.
How the system works 5Warnings to the population are delivered in avariety of ways. Over the airwaves - radio,television, SMS, email - and manually, using bells,megaphones or loud-speakers attached tomosques. In some countries, well-rehearsed drillswill kick in and local agencies will coordinate anevacuation.
