Despite the time gap between the earthquake and the impact of the tsunami, none of the impacted countries could be warned of the impending disaster. There were no tsunami warning systems in the Indian Ocean to detect tsunamis or to warn the public.
After the 2004 tsunami, India realised that it is susceptible to tsunamis too and the Indian Tsunami Early Warning System (ITEWS) at Indian National Centre for Ocean Information Services (INCOIS) was started in October 2007.
