Pacific Rim Disaster Reports
An excellent tool acting to confirm reactions to current seismic and local atmospheric gases modified by out gassing of methane from ground and water areas. This area is target for a rare atmospheric event necessary to facilitate planetary thermodynamic equilibrium which I know will appear on this app initially as a blizzard but will spread southward. I know it must happen, have lead time but not convinced I should head to safer latitudes or stay to be found a million years by survivors or new life form. I sure my device may even work again but doubt the network bringing the data will be around. Great App providing real time data for a very active planet.
The old version started up faster and didn't ask u to "login".... I love this app and I check it many times a day when I see notifications but now it takes twice as long to see the new alerts.
Edit: thanks for fixing it! 5/5
New Update Works Great and Adds Value!!
Personally and professionally at PDC, Disaster Alert provides me with the official notification of severe hazards that I need to keep up with what is happening around the globe.
