- What causes short-term seismic risk alerts?
Short-term seismic risks can be caused by a variety of factors, including tectonic activity, volcanic eruptions, and human activities such as drilling and fracking.
- How can I identify potential short-term seismic risks in my area?
Potential short-term seismic risks can be identified by monitoring seismic activity, studying geological data, and conducting risk assessments. You can have access to the data through Earling databases.
- What are the potential consequences of short-term seismic risks?
The potential consequences of short-term seismic risks include having at least one unusual seismic activity (for example, an earthquake larger than the last 5 years event), damage to buildings, businesses and infrastructure, injury or death, and disruption of essential services such as power and transportation which can cause other challenges.
- How can I prepare for short-term seismic risk alerts?
Preparing for short-term seismic risks includes developing emergency plans, transferring financial risks, and ensuring that buildings and infrastructure are properly designed and maintained to withstand seismic activity.
- What should I do if I feel an earthquake or other seismic event?
If you feel an earthquake or other seismic event, you should immediately take cover under a sturdy piece of furniture or in a door frame, and stay there until the shaking stops. If you are outside, move away from buildings, power lines, and other potential hazards.
- Are there any warning signs that a short-term seismic event may occur?
While there may not be any warning signs that a short-term seismic event may occur, monitoring seismic activity and staying informed about potential risks can help you be prepared.
- How can I stay informed about short-term seismic risks?
Staying informed about short-term seismic risks includes subscribing to Earling earthquake risk level monitoring tool tool, local news and weather reports, following the advice of emergency services and experts, and staying up-to-date with the latest research and risk assessments.
- Is there an SLA on the various models?
We will be publishing an SLA soon. If your company or application has specific requirements, please contact our sales team.
