Cover Story (view full-size image): On 2 May 2020 a near-field tsunami was generated by a strong (Mw6.6) earthquake in Crete Isl., Greece. The event, although no damaging, has been a “crash-test” for the Mediterranean tsunami warning system which is based on national monitoring centers and operates under the IOC/UNESCO umbrella. For the first time in the system’s life since 2012 an in depth evaluation of the system’s performance and its operational effectiveness in conditions of extremely narrow time frames was contacted. It has been shown that the system’s upstream component improves if the alert time is shortened by a few minutes and the initial earthquake parameters are more accurate. Drastic improvement of the downstream component, however, is needed to achieve timely alerting for local authorities and communities. View this paper
