BeschreibungGet an early warning if the location you are in is in the path of a tsunami wave. The Tsunami Early Warning app calculates tsunami wave propagation and sends you an SMS message if you are in danger. The message will include estimated time of contact with the wave, giving you a notice of the wave approaching.
Let the server know your location every time you change shores and have your phone around when on a beach to get an early warning.
No data roaming subscription is required for location updates.
***** Unlike some other services which just broadcast generic tsunami warnings, this one actually calculates wave propagation up to YOUR coordinates. It sends alerts ONLY if location you are in is on the way of a dangerous tsunami wave.
The 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami killed over 230,000 people in Indonesia, Sri Lanka, India, Thailand, Somali, Maldives, Seychelles and other countries. After the earthquake happened, tsunami victims could have had up to an hour to leave the shores, if they knew that the wave was approaching.
Install this app to get early warnings.
***** You will not get an alert if your location was calculated to be safe. Sending false alarms ruins the whole purpose of this service.
If your local tsunami siren beeps and the app is silent, then it does not mean that it is not working, it just means that no serious wave is expected at your particular location.
Make sure to install this app if you go to or live in one of the tsunami-prone areas such as Alaska, Thailand, Hawaii, Maldives, Mexico, Indonesia, Philippines, New Zealand, Australia etc.
