PDC launches Disaster Alert

November 1, 2016

Pacific Disaster Center (PDC) announces the launch of Disaster Alert™ for the web. This is the interface of the new web-accessible Disaster Alert, displaying PDC Integrated Active Hazards, Rainfall Accumulation, and Day/Night Indicator.

Following the huge success of Disaster Alert as a free-download iOS and Android mobile app for the public, we have now streamlined our web-accessed application, the Global Hazards Atlas, to create a new and highly improved Disaster Alert. The features and benefits are tremendous, including:

  • Mobile and desktop access from any web browser;
  • Your favorite map and layer features optimized for touch;
  • Improved, streamlined, and simplified data layers and time-series animation;
  • The ability to save bookmarks as files—no user account required;
  • Improved language support; and
  • Much more…

The new web-accessible Disaster Alert is based on the latest DisasterAWARE Quantum technology, for easy cross-device access.  Quantum technology will soon be incorporated into the upcoming versions of iOS- and Android-specific versions of the Disaster Alert mobile app, fully optimized for the specific platforms.

In the meantime, we hope that you enjoy the ongoing evolution of Disaster Alert (from Atlas), as part of our continuing commitment to improve your access to hazard and disaster information and to fostering disaster-resilient communities worldwide.
