Earthquake Warning California is the first in the nation early warning system for earthquakes and includes technology such as the free MyShake App that can give mobile users a few moments of notice before shaking so that they can take protective actions such as to drop, cover, and hold on. While the 3.5M earthquake is not a high enough magnitude to trigger the MyShake App (4.0M) or a Wireless Emergency Alert (5.0M), it’s an important reminder that California is earthquake country, and that earthquakes can strike at any time.
