An early warning for the big one

As of yesterday, Washington state residents can receive early warning of earthquakes through a universal emergency alert system. The ShakeAlert system, funded by the United States Geological Survey and already in use by California and Oregon, connects more than 1,150 seismometers along the Pacific coast to an automated alert system that can send smartphone alerts at least a couple of seconds before a quake occurs. California and Oregon residents can get the alerts via mobile apps, though so far, none of those apps have expanded to Washington. Ryan Johnston reports.

A recent survey by National Association of State Technology Directors found the COVID-19 pandemic introduced dramatic organizational changes that many believe could be permanent. The results published yesterday confirmed again that the health crisis sparked major investments in remote-work technologies, including laptops, video-conferencing software, chatbots and VPN licenses. And three-quarters NASTD members said they expect an increase in telework coupled with a reduction in on-site IT staff even after the pandemic recedes, with just 5% predicting their office populations will return to pre-COVID levels.

Today in Florida

A teenager accused of gaining unauthorized access to school computer systems in order to rig a homecoming queen contest with her mother will stand trial as an adult, and could spend 16 years in prison if convicted. Emily Grover, who turned 18 in April but who was arrested in March, when she was 17, faces four charges alongside her mother, Laura Carroll, alleging that they schemed to cast hundreds of fraudulent votes in the homecoming contest at a high school near Pensacola, Florida, an election that Grover ultimately won. A Florida State Department of Law Enforcement investigation concluded that phones and computers from their suburban household were used to access student records. Tim Starks has details on CyberScoop.
