ShakeAlertLA alerts you that an earthquake has been detected and that you may soon feel shaking. You can also use this app to prepare for an earthquake, get details on recent earthquakes, and find help after an earthquake. This app is brought to you by Mayor Eric Garcetti and the City of Los Angeles, and built on the ShakeAlert system developed by the U.S. Geological Survey.

There are so many people on her who are whining just because they can. It will alert you for a quake 5 or greater, not those 3’s ppl keep complaining about. You must have your location always on “on” and be in the LA area. I appreciate this app because it gets us actively thinking if we are prepared for a quake. Most of us are not, and if you’ve never lived through an earthquake you’re not likely to give it the importance you should. How can I say that you ask? Go. Ask your friends and coworkers if they’re prepared. Most people brush it off.
Idiocy at its best
Great APP glad LA finally launched the alerts for earthquakes 5.0 and up as clearly stated in the APP and thousands of other reviewers. Apparently 90% of people don’t read the specifics of the APP and just to shut these ignorant people who don’t read maybe APP should create notifications for shakes as low as 3.0 I personally don’t want to get a notification for every single earthquake that is 1.0 to 4.0 what’s the point those quakes make no damage. Anything above 5.0 I would worry and be weary and besides if you live in LA you should be prepared regardless if you’re not and just depending yourself on APP shows how ignorant you truly are. With that toodles hope review was useful. LOL. tiff tiff TA TA for now.
Recent Earthquake Map not functional
Downloaded the app 6 days ago because the "news" said it was for early warning but I live in Los Angeles and the "Recent Earthquake Map" still has 0 hits. I know that's not true because we literally have them everyday and I have received no warnings. I understand that you only get a warning for 5 or greater but the map should still list 4 or less. Early warning is the most important thing here and it doesn't do that, at all. It's mostly just an app that tells you how to prepare for a quake which if you live in southern California, you already know. In summation I find it completely useless and basically an advertisement for Garcetti.
