App DescriptionEarth Alerts is a 'near real time' weather monitoring and information service for natural hazards.
You won't find showers or sunny spells among the forecasts made by Earth Alerts - it's strictly a tsunami, earthquake and wildfire kind of kind of program
Earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanoes, cyclones, wildfires and landslides are all covered by Earth Alerts, with information taken from a variety of organizations that specialize in natural hazards, weather and geography. You can focus on each area separately, looking at maps, radar images, results and even news stories relating to whatever is currently happening.
Earth Alerts is a very interesting program and will be particularly attractive to people living or interested in the US. On the negative side, Earth Alerts' maps and graphs are not interactive and the old-fashioned interface casts a negative shadow on the program’s technological claims.
Earth Alerts is perfect for the disaster-obsessed, but lacks the polish needed to make it a truly great program..
I created Earth Alerts to do more than just track weather-related phenomenon. The inspiration for Earth Alerts grew out of an idea to create a single application for monitoring multiple types of natural hazard events. After all, our planet can be quite destructive to us mortals, by offering up dangers in a variety of ways!
Earth Alerts is a little program for anybody who is fascinated with the power of nature and enjoys keeping track of what our little blue planet is dishing out on a regular basis!
