Earthquake Early Warning System Now Covers West Coast

The ShakeAlert early earthquake warning app now covers the entire West Coast. While the app can't predict earthquakes, it does give seconds, and sometimes minutes, of warning before the shaking starts. A warning of even seconds can be useful — it gives you time to get away from heavy bookcases or dressers and time to find shelter under a doorway or sturdy desk.
