Federal funding increase moves ShakeAlert closer to reality

A recent boost in federal funding will move the ShakeAlert earthquake early warning system closer to completion.

The omnibus spending package passed by Congress and signed by the president in March that funds the federal government through Sept. 30 allocates $12.9 million for continued development and limited public rollout of the system. It also appropriates $10 million for capital costs to add more earthquake sensors and improve system infrastructure.
