The August 21 issue of Electronic Engineering Times has a short article about an earthquake warning system that sends alerts through via cable TV.  It is an extension of an existing network that provides alarms to hospitals, schools, and industry.  They admit that it may not provide more than a few seconds warning in worst case scenarios but it was felt that even that amount of time was much better than nothing at all. It would be at least enough time to stop a train or find the best place to stand.  For more info see, search for article ID 0405734.
