Critics said Monday's tsunami, which killed at least 28 people, exposed the limitation of a warning system that supporters have championed as the best way to help avoid a repeat of the 2004 Indian Ocean disaster. That disaster, which left some 230,000 people dead or missing in a dozen countries, prompted the United Nations and six governmental donors, including the United States, to create the $130 million Indian Ocean Tsunami Warning and Mitigation System which is expected to be operational at the end of 2008.
