Shake Alert: Earthquake Early Warning System Launches in Washington State.

The PNSN began testing the Shake Alert System way back in 2015 and officially launched it in Washington State, May 04, 2021.

As the ground begins to shake, the system will detect any nearing earthquake movement close to the epicenter and will notify the seismic stations monitored by the PNSN in real-time; giving us more time to Drop, Cover, and Hold in the event of an earthquake.
