EWEB Installs Earthquake Early Warning System Sensor

"ShakeAlert" can provide precious seconds of early warning before the severe shaking waves from an earthquake arrive. We are proud to install sensors at our generation facilities, which will trigger automatic shut down of equipment in the event of an earthquake. The system does not yet support public warnings, but this version allows selected early adopters to develop pilot implementations that demonstrate the system’s utility and develop technologies that pave the way for broader use.
