USGS offers one-stop shopping for global natural hazards events
The US Geological Survey’s (USGS) new Natural Hazards Support System (NHSS) is a web-based tool that helps monitor, respond to, and analyze natural hazards events around the world. It provides a one-stop, web-based portal to current natural hazards information, geospatial data, and other data directly from expert sources. This web-based synthesis of information provides decision makers and the public with a tool to track numerous natural hazard events as they are happening.
USGS NHSS contains dynamic, near real-time natural hazards information from a wide range of sources, such as the USGS National Earthquake Information Center, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA); the National Hurricane Center; the National Interagency Fire Center; and NOAA’s National Data Buoy Center.
