Most educated people are used to sipping tea and reading a newspaper in the morning. If other family members are sitting in the same room, they sometimes exchange news. Disaster-related news is one of the big sources for initiating a discussion. Earthquakes which occur suddenly have a priority over volcanoes, which give some indications of an eruption.

Novel mechanism may stop tsunamis in their tracks 26.1.2017 DNA: Popular News
Devastating tsunamis could be halted before hitting the Earth's shoreline by firing deep-ocean sound waves at the oncoming mass of water, researchers have proposed. According to Usama Kadri from Cardiff University in the UK, many lives could ultimately be saved by using acoustic-gravity waves (AGWs) against tsunamis that are triggered by earthquakes, landslides and other violent geological events. AGWs are naturally occurring sounds waves that move through the deep ocean at the speed of sound and can travel thousands of metres below the surface. AGWs can measure even hundreds of kilometres in length and it is thought that certain lifeforms such as plankton, that are unable to swim against a current, rely on the waves to aid their movement, enhancing their ability to find food. Kadri proposes that if we can find a way to engineer these waves, they can be fired at an incoming tsunami and will react with the wave in such a way that reduces its amplitude or height, causing its energy to dissipate over a ...

12 years on, India's tsunami alert system a reliable tool 23.12.2016 Deccan Herald - Analysis
It was early in the morning on December 26, 2004, and no one had any clue how the world was going to change within the next few hours. Just before 8 am, the entire South Asia was shaken by an earthquake of magnitude 9.3 that originated off Indonesia, releasing an amount of energy equivalent to 23,000 atom bombs that fell upon Hiroshima. The world's second largest earthquake triggered a devastating tsunami causing unprecedented loss of life and damage to property in the Indian Ocean rim countries. It was considered one of the deadliest natural hazards in history, killing over 2,30,000 people in 14 countries. In India, it claimed 10,749 lives, according to official estimates. Once the aftershocks faded away, a group of scientists and policymakers put their heads together to figure out what could be India's response in case of a recurrence. One of the things they decided was to create a tsunami alert system. Before 2004, there was no tsunami warning system in the Indian Ocean. In the absence of real-time ...
