Examples of Response to an Earthquake Early Warning


  Please note that the period between the Earthquake Early Warning and the arrival of strong tremors is very short, i.e. a matter of seconds (or between several seconds and a few tens of seconds). As a result, areas that are close to the focus of the earthquake may not receive the Earthquake Early Warning transmission before strong tremors hit.

  Please also note that there are limits to the accuracy of the Earthquake Early Warning, such as the estimated seismic intensity. This is because the system is necessarily dependent on very short-term data.

  Please be aware of these features and limitations when responding to Earthquake Early Warnings.
