ShakeAlert available March 11

Oregon Office of Emergency Management
announced that the ShakeAlert becomes available for public alerting in Oregon on March 11! 
What is ShakeAlert? 
It's an Earthquake Early Warning system developed by the
U.S. Geological Survey (USGS)
and its partners that detects significant earthquakes quickly, so alerts can tell people to take protective action. 
ShakeAlert also delivers alerts that trigger automated actions, such as slowing a train and opening fire station doors.

Hazards Lab website here: The OR Hazards Lab is a member of the PNSN and manages the Oregon Seismic Network.
