The system, described in the Friday, May 2 issue of the journal Science, could help mitigate disaster by giving people a few moments to take shelter under solid furniture, evacuate buildings, divert aircraft, stop trains, shut down pipelines and computer networks and distance themselves from dangerous machinery and chemicals.

The system is based on

Other earthquake-prone countries such as Mexico and Taiwan have developed early warning systems based on measurements of peak ground motion the instant the ground-shaking S-wave is detected by a seismic station. The advantage of the new system, says Allen, is that it uses the low-energy P-waves, providing precious seconds to react before the damaging S-waves arri......
