Take the survey HERE. The USGS, working with a university, is taking a survery of an app for our phones that would tie into a USGS early warning system giving us seconds to prepare for a specific anticipated intensity of shaking. How cool is that? Take the survey, give them their feedback so they can make it a system that works for us.
Nearly 20 years ago this week, the 17th to be precise was the Northridge Quake. An early warning may have given some of us a few seconds to prepare for the violent shaking that took place that morning.
