MyShake earthquake app to send earthquake early warning in California

October 18, 2019: With the help of MyShake app, all Californians will be able to receive warnings before the major earthquakes.
Ground motion sensors from across the state will be used to detect earthquakes and the notifications will be sent out to give Californians a second to tens of seconds earlier to take precautions.
The MyShake app is now available for download to iOS and Android devices which allows earthquake warning messages to reach Californians statewide.
Earthquake early warning works because communications networks can receive and send messages faster than seismic waves travel.

Earthquake early warning system can warn of quakes as much as a few minutes before they strike. Countries with such systems include Mexico, Japan, and the United States, where the most advanced system is California's state-run ShakeAlert.
