How it Works

The SkyAlert Earthquake Early Warning System (EEWS) consists of our Critical Warning Platform (the Cloud), an Epicenter Receiver and the SkyAlert Mobile App.

When an earthquake happens, the SkyAlert Critical Warning Platform (CWP) receives the earthquake data from the USGS and utilizes the location of the receiver and/or mobile app to calculate the intensity of local shaking. It will also calculate the amount of time before the shaking will occur.

For significant shaking intensities, the receiver issues a customizable audio warning letting the user know what intensity of shaking to expect as well as how much time before the earthquake strikes.
