BEIJING: China plans to install tsunami detection buoys in the disputed South China Sea and waters east of the Ryukyu Trench and Taiwan Island to firm up its hold on the disputed region. They will be linked to international tsunami warning networks, providing early warnings for China’s east and south coasts and nearby countries, said Yuan Ye, director of the tsunami warning centre of the State Oceanic Administration.
