Wired Magazine: THE UNITED STATES NEEDS AN EARTHQUAKE WARNING SYSTEM ALREADY
Early Warning Labs is on the forefront of earthquake early warning. Our users are getting live alerts now and taking action.
From Wired Magazine:
ON MONDAY NIGHT, residents of the Los Angeles neighborhoods of Westwood, Los Feliz, Silver Lake, and parts of the San Fernando Valley experienced a mild earthquake—a magnitude 3.6. Most people slept through the temblor and no damage was reported.
But a select group of 150 LA residents got a text alert on their mobile phone a full eight seconds before the quake hit at 11:10 pm—enough time for people to drop, cover, and hold on.
