The USGS is seeking help in how to most effectively communicate this information to emergency managers and the public. In a separate scientific development, we are also sometimes able to recognize that an earthquake is underway and communicate this information to more distant sites before the shaking arrives, thus providing a few seconds.

The NEHRP 5-year strategic plan (Expanding and Using Knowledge to Reduce Earthquake Losses: The National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program Strategic Plan –,'' March ) should be a guiding document, and each agency's budget should be in step with it, but they are not.
