ShakeAlert: An earthquake warning from your cellphone



Rating : 4.75
ShakeAlert is a prototype earthquake early warning system for the West Coast. ShakeAlert for cellphones would warn users when ground shaking from a nearby earthquake will reach them, allowing time to duck and cover, as in this video dramatization.

ShakeAlert is currently being tested by some utilities, transportation systems and cities to shut down critical systems that could be damaged or cause injury during
violent shaking.
