How To Avoid Natural Disasters

If there's something man still didn't manage to beat in this world that's nature. To be more specific I am talking about natural disasters. Well at least most of them and since information is the best weapon we have against floods forest fires earthquakes or tornadoes knowing how to avoid natural disasters means knowing when and where are they expected to occur...

Earth Alerts

Because "sometimes mother nature gets a little upset" you should get Earth Alerts and get real time information on a variety of natural hazard events including earthquakes tsunamis volcanoes tropical cyclones wildland fires landslides severe weather local weather and even more. Adding parties with a lot of drunk and aggressive people around would also be interesting especially for certain areas... ;)

This piece of code is absolutely free and it also has a Google Maps version available online here. For usage on the road on your mobile I think this is nothing less but priceless! For the Windows software system requirements are pretty low a Pentium III-class processor with 128 MB of memory being enough as long as it's capable of at least 1024x768 screen resolution and you have 5 MB of disk space and a decent Internet connection. Oh yeah when it comes to software it seems Earth Alerts only works on 32-bit Windows XP/2000 and Windows 7/Vista also including the 64-bit versions this time.

That's all folks! Be sure to stay away from mother nature's wrath all right? Good luck!
