Wireless Emergency Alert test message Thursday, 11am,
ShakeAlert Earthquake Early Warning Delivery comes to WA. this May!

ShakeAlert® is an earthquake early warning (EEW) system that detects significant earthquakes so quickly that alerts can reach many people before shaking arrives. ShakeAlert is not earthquake prediction, rather a ShakeAlert Message indicates that an earthquake has begun and shaking is imminent.
