Natural Hazards Notifications with Earth Alerts

earth-alertsEarthquakes, tsunamis, volcanoes, tropical cyclones, wildfires, landslides, are natural hazards from which you want to stay away. But what if there is an app that can monitor these hazards almost in real time? Nevertheless, this would be a solution for the ones living in dangerous areas. Especially if you live in the U.S., Earth Alerts is the perfect tool for taking in consideration the natural disasters that might occur in your area.

Earth Alerts is a one man project that started back in 2005. It is a single application for monitoring multiple types of natural hazard events using online resources provided by organizations such as the National Weather Service, U.S. Geological Survey and Smithsonian Institution. All types of notifications, reports and images gathered in a single U.I., provides the user with enough information regarding natural hazards from his area of living.

Unfortunately the app provides full information only for the US territory, although there is an option to choose any location from around the globe, this is not sufficient to create a complete report. Using all kinds of public feeds, the app performs a cyclic update process at various time intervals. The drawback here is that sometimes the update process tends to be “permanent” without delivering the desired information especially if you choose another location outside US.

In case you are interested more on weather information, Earth Alerts is not the perfect solution for you because it does not provide an extensive weather data. The app includes only basic weather tracking, current conditions, local forecasts and radar/satellite imagery. But if you are fascinated by the power of nature or if you are interested of keeping track of natural hazards around the world, Earth Alerts is a suitable product.
