Executive Order Gives US Control Over Oceans

Well, it does seem to pertain to the Homeland, but it shows that the US was thinking about ocean-related disasters just weeks before the Tsunami hit.



"Executive Order: Committee on Ocean Policy

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, it is hereby ordered as follows:

Section 1. Policy. It shall be the policy of the United States to:

(a) coordinate the activities of executive departments and agencies regarding ocean-related matters in an integrated and effective manner to advance the environmental, economic, and security interests of present and future generations of Americans; and

(b) facilitate, as appropriate, coordination and consultation regarding ocean-related matters among Federal, State, tribal, local governments, the private sector, foreign governments, and international organizations.
