from Tech Times
The federal government recently announced its support for earthquake warning systems as part of its expanded commitment to increase the nation's resilience to the natural disaster. On the same day, President Barack Obama also signed an executive order that mandates seismic safety codes for all federal buildings, as well as mobilizes federal assets to support disaster recovery efforts. The United States Geological Survey and its government, private, and academic partners launched the beta phase of ShakeAlert, the earthquake early warning system for the West Coast.
