Disaster Early Warning System

Hi. I understand that there were early warning signals before the Tsunami struck, but now warnings were issued. In Northern Europe and in North America they have early warning systems against tornadoes and other severe storms, in the USA this service is provided by the National Severe Storms Laboratory. Do we have any early warning systems for disasters in South Africa and if yes, who is the responsible authority to issue the warnings?

The National Disaster Management Centre has verified that no, we don't have such early warning systems, and that yes, they would be the central responsible authority.
