Philippines, Australia sign on to tsunami alert system

From Site:
The Philippines and Australia signed agreements to receive tsunami warning information from the Comprehensive Nuclear- Test-Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO) on Friday. These countries can now use CTBTO data from the organization's 232 seismic monitoring stations that were set up all over the globe to detect nuclear weapons tests.

"This will improve the capability of the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology to determine the occurrence of a tsunami in the archipelago and issue public warnings," Alberto G Romulo, the Philippines' Secretary of Foreign Affairs, said after signing the agreement.
