UN join forces to implement early warning systems in tsunami-ravaged countries

It could have been completely different. In the Pacific Ocean region, tsunami early warning systems have been in place for years, particularly in Japan and the United States, to protect citizens and towns along vulnerable coastlines that have experienced great destruction caused by tsunamis in the past. Now people are prepared and vulnerable areas are evacuated when threatened by tsunamis, with few deaths resulting in either country.
