Early warning system (EWS) is implemented as a system of information communication mechanism and comprises sensors, event detection and decision subsystems. The system forecast and signal disturbances that adversely affect the stability of the physical world, providing the lead time for the response and prepare for the adversities and to minimize impacts.
