LastQuake is a free, mobile application dedicated to alerting populations and gathering testimonies in real-time when an earthquake occurs. Designed by seismologists, LastQuake is the official app of the Euro-Mediterranean Seismological Center (EMSC). Thanks to the participative action of its users, only a few minutes are needed for the EMSC to estimate earthquake effects and notify the population.

[LastQuake is an ad-free app!]

EMSC detects earthquakes using:

∘ Earthquake witnesses, who are the first to feel an earthquake, hence the first informed that an event is happening.

∘ Internet and mobile technologies, which allow rapid information collection of the effects observed by witnesses, who are asked to fill in a questionnaire and share photos and videos.

Awesome earthquake app, one of the best out there!

This app is definitely one of the best out there! Every time a significant earthquake occurs, this app will almost immediately add it to their database! Not only that, but the app allows users to submit “felt reports”, in which users who have felt the quake can report their experiences, such as how it felt like and what kind of effects the earthquake caused (damages and such). I find that feature amazing. Also, if the earthquake was strong enough to cause a potential tsunami, this app links you to the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center’s website, so you can assess the risk!

These are just some of the features you can find on the app. Overall, it’s an amazing app, and you should definitely download it if you live in an earthquake prone area, or even if you are just interested by earthquakes in general.

Thank you EMSC for your service!

Awesome App

It’s a great app that allows people to post what they felt when they felt it. People never fails to amaze me that they feel the need to pipe up and post that they didn’t feel a thing, or never heard it, as if trying to say the earthquake never happened or was nothing, these “people” all live 100 to 200 miles away from it. apparently they have never actually looked at the app and realize that their location in miles is also posted along with their comment,Other than these “people” it’s a great app. AngieMcMac

Thanks Angie for your nice comment. For us as seismologists, it is essential to understand all reactions to earthquake in order to take them into account in public communication. Stay safe

Life saving information

Having this app to wake us up, should there be a noteworthy earthquake in Alaska or the northwestern islands, in the middle of the night, can be life saving for us living in Hawaii, especially in the case of a tsunami threat, or when the earthquake goes unreported. It would also give mainland people a few minutes to find refuge if the earthquake force could reach their area if detected on time . There are some earthquakes that our report

Thank you and stay safe
