A Better Warning System? (31 Dec 2004)

From Wired:

Wild animals seem to have escaped the Indian Ocean tsunami, adding weight to notions they possess a sixth sense for disasters, experts said Thursday.

Sri Lankan wildlife officials have said the giant waves that killed over 24,000 people along the Indian Ocean island's coast seemingly missed wild beasts, with no dead animals found.

We might not understand how it works, but we don't need to do so in order to be able to use it. Tag lots of animals living near the coast and track them by satellite (I'm sure such a system has already been developed for the study of migration patterns etc). When they all start to leave - do likewise.
