Before we offer our analysis, insight can be had by considering the evolution of the existing tsunami warning system in the Pacific. One of the most destructive tsunamis of the past century resulted from a great earthquake centered near Unimak Island in Alaska's Prince William Sound on April 1, 1946.
Following the great earthquake of March 28, 1964, centered in the Gulf of Alaska, which killed 120 individuals, what had been examples of national collective action became international in nature when, in 1965, the existing national warning centers were brought together to form an international warning center, the Tsunami Warning System in the Pacific (TWSP), hosted by the United States at its PTWC in Honolulu.
tsunami warning system in the Pacific operates on an annual budget of less than $2 million.
