The author discusses the need to effectively utilize the tools and geophysical knowledge of the world most particularly for the purpose of earthquake hazard mitigation in response to the 2011 magnitude-9 Tohoku-Oki earthquake devastated Japan. He also stresses the importance of developing a rapid tsunami-warning system that have an access to high-quality data at short distances as well as a method that can determine both the magnitude of the earthquake and the mechanism of faulting.Great Information that today we have enough resourses to predict and manage disasters but we are not using

The article deals with the earthquake early warning systems (EEWS) which can detect the initial low-amplitude ground motions in real-time. It outlines the applications for EEWS. Based on the article, the EEWS is viewed as a means to minimize potential risk to human lives and financial losses.I will use this for Earthquake Predictions
