Google announced they are now showing richer earthquake related information right at the top of the search results for earthquake related queries.
They want to give people who feel a tremor quick and authoritative information about what they just felt. Google said the “information will include a summary of the size of the quake, a map of the affected areas, and tips to safely navigate the aftermath.” In addition, the Google “map will show areas that shook with various intensities (known as a shakemap), so you’ll be able to quickly assess the reach of the earthquake as well as its epicenter.”
In addition, Google will also show you safety tips and also show you the estimated damage hours or days after the event.
You can try it yourself by searching for [earthquake] or [earthquakes near me].
