Google Public Alerts

Google Public Alerts is Google’s new platform for alerting you with emergency messages such as evacuation notices for hurricanes, and everyday alerts such as storm warnings. This service will show relevant weather, public safety and earthquake alerts from US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the National Weather Service, and the US Geological Survey (USGS) when you search on Google Maps.
Google Public Alerts is a project of the Google Crisis Response team, supported by Google.org, which uses Google's strengths in information and technology to build products and advocate for policies that address global challenges. We hope Google Public Alerts provides the public with information it needs to make better decisions in times of crisis.
