China opens tsunami warning center on the South China Sea

The center, built and managed by China, monitors major earthquake subduction zones -- where the Earth plates converge -- in the South China, Sulu and Sulawesi seas and provides 24-hour uninterrupted warning services. Until now, services relied on American and Japanese warning centers. The center is capable of warning the public of a tsunami eight to ten minutes after an earthquake.
