Ten seconds doesn't seem like much time, but if people had that much of a warning before a big earthquake hit, it could save countless lives and prevent serious injury. The video points out that, by measuring the quick-moving P-waves and creating an alert system, people could be alerted of an earthquake with enough time to get under a desk, off ladders, or out of other precarious situations.
