Global Disaster Finder Now Online


A new website from U.S. Geological Survey allows Internet users to find recent and current earthquakes, volcanoes, severe weather, fires and other disasters. The online, interactive map, announced today, provides real-time icon-coded information that is comprehensive for the United States and provides limited data for other parts of the world.

Among the information fed into the website:

Global earthquakes with a magnitude greater than 3.0.
Weather watches and warnings for North America.
Hurricane tracking points and potential impact zones for the Western Hemisphere.
Wildfires in the United States.

The site is at nhss.cr.usgs.gov.... Click on "Launch Viewer" on the left side of the page

I know many of you are continually monitoring volcano's, earthquakes and the like at USGS so I thought maybe this link might provide additional information more quickly.
I myself think it's a great tool.
Sorry that this only provides info in the continental US and not abroad to those outside the US but still noteworthy nonetheless.


Oops I apologize, it does include global events as well.
