Modern earthquake alert system appears in China by 2022

More than 15 thousand interconnected sensors will be installed throughout China.

After the earthquake, the control center will register electrical impulses instantly, after which within two seconds people living in a potentially dangerous area will receive an alert message to the smartphones. Residents will have time to leave the premises before the seismic waves reach the surface.

According to the developers, similar systems operate in Japan and on United States west coast, but Chinese will be much more complicated in many ways.

It will be able not only to trace tectonic shifts, but also to calculate the possible consequences of an earthquake, Russian RIA Information agency reports.
