Earthquakes can be devastating, and they don’t come with any prior warnings. So it is best to be prepared for them beforehand, especially if you live in an area that is a frequent target of earthquakes. We may not be able to detect earthquakes before they occur, but thanks to technology, our communication systems are faster than the speed of the earthquake waves (2-13km/sec). Many agencies like and are working to provide global earthquake warnings as soon as they occur. You can use a smartphone app to fetch this data and maybe even get ready for an earthquake before it hits your area. We are going to list four apps that will notify you about all the earthquakes as soon as they are recorded. Points to Keep in Mind Below are some points that you should keep in mind before using these apps: • The time before you may be warned will be barely five seconds to a minute.
One of such applications is Earthquake Alert! It's an easy-to-use app filled with various details on the latest earthquakes and lots of tools for checking them on maps. It's definitely the app to use if you're monitoring such events.
It might not be much, but at least you can prepare your mind for it or maybe even get to a safe area. • The apps are ad-supported, and some also come with Pro versions offering more features. • All the apps come with “Filters,” so make sure you customize your app according to your needs before using.
Otherwise, you will start receiving earthquake alerts that may not be important to you. • All these apps track your location, so you must enable location tracking to use them. • Depending on your location, you may receive alerts from the seismic network which can be slow (from five to fifteen minutes), so these apps may not be of much use to you (at least the warning part). Earthquake Networks (Android) This is by far the most comprehensive app for earthquake warnings. Uses both a community warning system and alerts from official seismic networks. It has a section where community members – including you – can send a warning to all Earthquake Network users if they feel an earthquake. It also takes advantage of your smartphone’s accelerometer to detect earthquakes and let you know, so you can at least warn other users.
But luckily, there are well supported by both Mac and Windows PC, and they are FAT32 (it might be called MS-DOS on Mac) and exFAT. As long as we format the external hard drive to one of these 2 file systems, it can be shared between Mac and Windows.
Its filters are very good, and you can easily filter locations, magnitude and time. There are also chatrooms where you can chat with other Earthquake Network users. I did saw some alerts duplicating from different seismic networks, so try not to get confused. Earthquakes (Android) A very simple and light app, and my personal favorite, is perfect for novice users. The app only focus on what is important and leaves all the bells and whistles to the others. The app uses data from seven teen different seismic networks to notify you and never duplicates warnings. It has three filters – Magnitude, Region, and Earthquake depth.
