"...I'm also proud to report to you that NASA is putting our technology to work
in support of federal tsunami recovery and relief efforts. Using satellites
and instruments from our Earth Observing System, we are producing data to
assist in the ongoing humanitarian efforts. For example, NASA worked to
provide MODIS and EO-1 Hyperion sensor data collections and historical data
to the U.S. Navy to help them safely bring ships involved in the relief
effort into ports damaged by debris and sediments. Additionally, the
information provided by our satellites is being used to investigate the
event and document the devastation caused by the tsunami. This research
will aid in the future development of tsunami and earthquake predictive models
and warning systems..."

Hey 50 million people, here comes the tsunami. Yeah right!
In Japan they have one that goes "hey 100 million people here comes the tsunami". And it works! One to two hours warning to back off a click from the beach? You could do it in a wheelchair!.........Rich
