~EARTH ALERTS PROGRAM~
Tsunamis, earthquakes, volcanoes, hurricanes, typhoons, tornadoes, thunderstorms, snow storms, floods, fires, landslides...
These are the kinds of things our planet dishes out which arouses human curiosity and, occasionally, fear.
What is EARTH ALERTS?
Earth Alerts is a Windows-based application that provides alert notifications, reports, and imagery on many types of natural phenomenon that are occurring real-time both worldwide as well as in specific locations within the United States (including Guam, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands). Earth Alerts also lets you track weather and earthquake activity for Global locations!
Earth Alerts makes use of the resources from organizations such as the National Weather Service, U.S. Geological Survey and numerous other agencies to identify what sort of things "Mother Earth" is currently doing.
To use Earth Alerts, you simply select the specific activity types (earthquakes, tsunamis, weather, etc.) and the specific locations you are interested in. The application will then automatically retrieve the latest information from various live data feeds on the Internet, and then present it to you.
Is EARTH ALERTS just another weather application?
In a word: NO!
True, there are many weather applications available, but Earth Alerts is designed to be much more than just another weather application! While weather-related features such as alerts, local forecasts, radar/satellite imagery, current conditions, etc. are certainly an important part of it, Earth Alerts offers much more than that! After all, our planet can sometimes be quite destructive to us "mere mortals" by offering up dangers in a variety of ways! And so, the inspiration for Earth Alerts grew out of an idea to create a single application that would collect information on ALL TYPES of natural events/hazards.
Earth Alerts is a tool to provide you with a way to be notified immediately whenever events such as tsunamis, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, hurricanes/typhoons, floods, wildfires, landslides, etc. occur near you as well as elsewhere in the world. Earth Alerts gives you all this AND weather related alerts and information!
Earth Alerts is for anyone who is fascinated with the power of nature and enjoys learning what our little blue planet is dishing out on a regular basis...
Earth Alerts is 100% FREE to download and use!
