The quake occurred in Taiwan at 1:47 a.m. on September 21, 1999, and measured 7.3 on the Richter scale. It created major losses such as had rarely been seen since the war. The reason is that there are a lot of people still sleeping deeply that didn’t make aware of this earthquake.

This EARTHQUICK is designed to wake up people, like a disaster alarm, by making sounds and the light flicker for the blind when it measured immediate or big quake. People need to press the button to stop the bell. Moreover, if people keep this and the building collapsed, people can use earthquick to make sounds to call for help.
