Will California Create an Earthquake Early Warning System?

A California state lawmaker announced legislation on Monday, Jan. 28, to build an $80 million early warning system that would alert state residents seconds before an earthquake hits.

If approved, the system would take a year or two to deploy and warn residents about a minute before the shaking starts, said Sen. Alex Padilla, during a news conference at the California Institute of Technology Seismological Laboratory (Caltech) in Pasadena.
