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......
