The warnings are not broadcast to the public because the system is still in beta testing.

While several seconds may not sound like much time, early warning proponents say it's enough notice for trains to stop, utilities to shut off systems or children to duck under their desks.

The U.S. has lagged behind nations like Japan and Mexico in implementing a public warning system due to lack of funding.

Earlier this year, state Sen. Alex Padilla introduced a bill to build an $80 million statewide quake warning system. Scientists estimated they would need to upgrade 400 monitoring stations and add 200 new ones to make the current system more reliable before sending alerts to residents.
