[Media Source*] This just in from Reuters! (see source link)
Apparently an Israeli company is donating a tsunami warning system free of charge. The device is not only high tech, but is able to spread the word probably faster than the one in the Pacific. These devices are about $170 a piece and are smaller than a shoe box can warn not only governments, but to private cell phones, pagers or dedicated receivers spreading the word more efficiently.
"The sensors determine the tremor's intensity as well as the height and speed of the waves above it," said Gitelis, of Avtipus Patents and Inventions Ltd., which specializes in sensors and communications devices.
The system can then analyze all the data and predict if and when a tsunami will come, where it will hit and how big its impact will be," he told Reuters.
"We're not doing this to make money," Gitelis said. "He want to help people. We plan to give our product to poor countries for free and we will not charge the countries that were affected by the disaster in Asia."
Ironic that a nation seen as an international threat to world peace can be so benevolent. Selah?
