4.4 La Verne Quake – Hundreds of QuakeAlert Users Were Warned

By
In EWL

For the La Verne earthquake on August 28, 2018 Early Warning Labs had many users beta testing our QuakeAlert Mobile App.

We ran the numbers and the system worked as designed with alerts going out to:

373 users over intensity 2.  Avg warning time: 10.5 seconds

80 users over intensity 3. Avg warning time: 5 seconds

Intensity 3 definition per the USGS:

III. Felt quite noticeably by persons indoors, especially on upper floors of buildings. Many people do not recognize it as an earthquake. Standing motor cars may rock slightly. Vibrations similar to the passing of a truck.

 

We are working with the USGS to test and approve a wider release.  Sign up for our email list to be notified first!
