On Friday, March 10, at around 04:20 in the morning, severe shaking was felt in a large part of the country. Many Colombians received a warning Google on mobile phones minutes before the earthquake.

“Android Earthquake Warning System is a free service that detects earthquakes around the world and can alert Android users before a tremor begins,” the company website says.
