Earthquake Warning System Needed in CA

California ripe for mega earthquake needs early warning system say lawmakers

California is ripe for a mega earthquake and it desperately needs an early warning system, say Members of the US Congress who are urging President Barack Obama to make funds available to make a prototype system that is currently being used at Caltech (California Institute of Technology).

According to Caltech, their system, which would give people those precious seconds to get somewhere safe, could easily be expanded to cover the West Coast if the funds were there.
Many politicians, scientists and members of the public cannot understand why the US Government cannot spend a few million dollars to create a warning system that could save thousands of lives and billions of dollars in potential damage because people were not prepared.
