After massive quakes, millions in Mexico turn to early warning app

19 Oct 2017, Reuters

Since the September earthquakes in Mexico, early warning start-up SkyAlert has doubled its users to almost 6 million. The start-up is looking to expand to other earthquake-prone countries in Latin America that lack an official warning system, but SkyAlert is facing financing challenges since Mexico City has limited their ability to access funds through public financing.
