are detectable after an invetion created about 35 years ago, where 24 countries around the Pacific set up the Pacific
Tsunami Warning System. A group of seismic monitoring stations and a network of tide gauges are used for detection. The biggest
problem with this system is that it is difficult to predict how large and destructive the resulting waves will be. Scientists
are currently working on better predictive tools.
When you hear a tsunami warning, move at once to higher ground and stay there until local
authorities say it is safe to return home.
