Can a tsunami warning system save lives during an earthquake? (Scientific American)

It was a through-the-looking-glass moment for Chris Goldfinger, sitting in a meeting about Sumatran earthquakes on a recent Friday afternoon in Chiba, Japan, on the outskirts of Tokyo. The floor started heaving as if a switch flipped. That terrible shaking turned out to be the magnitude 9.0 Sendai temblor, tsunami-maker and devastator. “We felt pretty safe,” says Goldfinger, director of Oregon State University’s Active Tectonics and Seafloor Mapping Lab, “but, oddly, still had time to run outside and ride through four or five minutes of mainshock. That was a very long time for the Earth to feel like the ocean.”
