Google adding information about local earthquakes in searches

Google Search earthquake data

Earthquakes can be extremely dangerous, and they’re definitely something to keep in mind if you live in California. We’re always at risk of big earthquakes, and smaller but still significant earthquakes happen all the time.

Google will now show earthquake information in cards at the top of search results in the event of an earthquake near you. It’ll show a map with earthquake intensities for different areas, the size of the quake, and even tips for staying safe in the event of an earthquake affecting your area.

Info showing up in search will mean more people will be able to stay safe and up-to-date on their situation in the case of an earthquake. It’s definitely a helpful feature and I’m sure I’ll be using it soon.
