Google Public Alerts, a platform designed to bring you relevant emergency alerts when and where you’re searching for them.
“With today’s launch of Public Alerts by Google Crisis Response team-on Google Maps, relevant weather, public safety, and earthquake alerts from US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the National Weather Service, and the US Geological Survey (USGS) will be accessible when you search on Google Maps.
If you click through to “more info” on this alert, you’ll find a page showing more details about the alert, with the full description from the alert publisher, in this case the National Weather Service, a link to their site and other useful information,” Steve Hakusa, Public Alerts Engineer informed.
Whether you see an alert depends on which alerts are active at a given location, their severity, and your search query.
To-see all of the active alerts in one place, you can visit–the sites homepage, which-also provides a link to more information on the-new platform and gives instructions to interested organizations who want to make their emergency data available through this tool.
