It will work great for a few years until the operators conclude "there's never a tsunami on my watch" - then they'll start sleeping through their shifts ... or the bureaucrats will forget about tsunamis in five years and stop funding to properly maintain the system.

Sorry, I just see the way things work out here in Asia and can't help but be skeptical.

By way of example of "the way things work out here in Asia" ...

From “IBI” digital services:
Donated Mercury boats mired in Kerala government red tape
Brunswick's donation of 20 new fishing boats to tsunami victims in India have not yet been distributed because of government neglect (21 December 2006)
