Description

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.

** AN INNOVATIVE EARTHQUAKE DETECTION METHOD **
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!

Good app

I always keep the app for earthquakes up. It is organized very well. I can quickly see where the most recent earthquakes are all over the world. When I lived in an area that had earthquakes I reported a couple. I was not ever aware that there were so many earthquakes happening all over the world until I used this app. It has opened my eyes to how many and some are big. It has been educational.

Thank you for your nice appreciation and stay safe

It’s good

I like this app but I wish I would get notifications for quakes for my area ONLY, with a warning sound. I don’t need to know there was a large earthquake in Indonesia.. I’m in the Southern California desert. I do like how the map shows more earthquakes worldwide than USGS shows, but I wish they were better color coded by size and timeline like they are on USGS. Overall it’s a good app, but I was looking for an app to give me an alert for quakes in my area, which it has sometimes, but like I said, I don’t need to know about earthquakes worldwide. I can look at the map and see for myself. If the San Andres or surrounding faults are acting up near me and I need to prepare, that’s when I want a heads up!

Developer Response ,

Hello, thank you for your suggestions. Indeed, it'd make sense to restrict notifications to a certain distance. We'll do our best but please keep in mind that we're a not for profit NGO offering free and ad-free services so we have limited means. Concerning the color code, could you please precise I just checked here https://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/map/?extent=19.39407,-137.19727&extent=53.48805,-52.82227 and do not see a color code? Could you also precise on which of LastQuake map you'd like to see this color code implemented. Thanks and stay safe
