March 11 '08: The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has announced the completion of the Tsunami Warning System after the deployment of the last two tsunami detection buoys in the South Pacific.
Navy Vice Adm. Conrad C. Lautenbacher said in the press release, "Completing the U.S. Tsunami Warning System is truly a monumental triumph that includes the advancement of the science, the development and testing of cutting edge technology, and the large scale project management skills that brought it all together on a global scale."Now completed, the warning system will link state, local, regional and international scientists who are monitoring the Pacific Ocean for any sign that a tsunami might strike a coast, in the hopes that a tragedy like the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami can be avoided. The press release continued, "Other components of the Tsunami Warning System include NOAA's tsunami warning centers, a network of tide and seismic stations, forecast models for at-risk communities, and TsunamiReady, a public preparedness and education program."
