    Moronic applies better.
    Worry about YOUR location.
    Why worry about a natural disaster that my never come.
    Do you sleep with your cloths on so you can run out the door?
    You got a better chance of a home invasion.

    I do not prep for earthquakes. Likely due to my mindset driven by my logistics here in East Texas. If that is, and it sounds like it likely is, a major concern that drives your priorities regarding being prepared. Then you achieve a level of satisfaction and peace of mind that you deserve for being forward thinking. Congratulations.
    I will choose to enjoy the journey that God has prepared for me. Hidden Content

    Not something that I worry about. I read a piece with a map that indicated living in MN is actually likely the safest overall place to live in the U.S. regarding threat for a emergency situation. It makes sense as we do not need to worry about tropical storms, no earth quakes, etc.... The biggest threat to MN outside of socialists, is if Yellowstone decides to blow big. Even then we would still have time to evacuate south and east.
    Bottom line. Prepare for what you can prepare for, including any type of scenerio and then rest in peace.

    Not being at sea level, no worries of a tsunami. Stable geology here. If one occurred , the app wouldn't give a warning. It just announces after the fact. I choose not to disterb my sleep with things that have no direct eminent impact.

    Nope, nothing concerning earthquakes. No major fault lines around here, and too far inland to be bothered with high waves.
    Now tornadoes... most certainly!

    No worries of that here in Texas. If it is applicable to your area then it may be a good thing to have but I was unaware that they could predict earthquakes with any certainty. Tsunami warning?

    No apps next to my bed. Just a .45 on the nightstand and a 12g strategically located nearby...before the accident of course.

    If you guys read the op's posting, phone alerts him to ALL 6+ quakes in the WORLD!
    Unless he works in the field, WHAT FOR?
    I could understand if he lived near an active fault line, wanting an alert there for pending, not post event.
    I stand by my opinion.
