Be alerted about the Latest EMSC Significant Earthquakes!
The Euro-Mediterranean Seismological Centre proposes an innovative browser extension that displays only the earthquakes that matter to people. Each year 97% of the earthquakes around the world are detected only by instruments. About 1000 earthquakes are of interest to the general public because they are felt. This service is based on the EMSC seismic rapid detection tools and monitored by seismologists.
The EMSC is a non-profit scientific organization created in 1975 which federates 84 institutes from 55 different countries. It offers rapid earthquake information to the public and international organizations.
The EMSC aims to reach the eyewitnesses and encourage them to fill in their earthquake questionnaire and send pictures that can be shared with all the citizens.
