Alert Map of world events

THIS is quite amazing.

National Association of Radio-Distress Signalling and Infocommunications,
Havaria Emergency and Disaster Information Services
Budapest, Hungary

This website shows all the ‘alert’ events happening around the world right now – from Hurricane Dora in the Indian Ocean to a volcano eruption in Siberia. From an epidemic of dengue fever in Paraguay to a chemical spill in Michigan.

I wonder what percentage of this stuff makes it to our news?

Very interesting, and at the same time, slightly worrying. I can see how people could easily become addicted to this site, just waiting for that major disaster..
