Yikes, hope this fizzles out before doing any real damage.

Sea bouys have wave height measuring sensors, along with other stat gathering devices.

True but doesn't the earthquake itself trigger the warning?

I think so, and 7.9 is no joke.

Though the devastating Indonesia tsunami was trigged by a 9.1-9.4 (which, I don't know the math, but I think is @ 125X more powerful than a 7.9)

Supposedly the quake triggered a 32 foot shift in sea water; if so, a warning should go out ASAP.  Then, after sea bouy data comes in, any corrections/clarifications should issue.  If there really was a 32 foot shift, I still can't believe there wasn't a tsunami, but so be it.
