Earthquake Notification

I learned today that the USGS has an Earthquake Notification Service.  They will e-mail you when there is an earthquake in your area.

Somehow I don’t think I’ll need this service.  If there is an earthquake in my area, I think the shake-rattle-and-roll of the earth will notify me just fine.  I don’t think that I will need an e-mail to let me know what happened.

Post Script–

My wife reminds me that it is nice to know the location of the epicenter and the strength of the quake.  I agree.  In fact, we often look up that info at http://quake.usgs.gov/recenteqs/

    It is nice to know the epicenter and estimated Richter scale numbers though.

    That seems very silly since you would know when the earthquake hits, but I agree with Wendy, it is nice to know where it is and how strong. To bad they can’t notify you before they hit so you can prepare. Now, THAT would be worthwhile.
