Mitigation of earthquake damages remains an open task, despite the fact that many solutions have been proposed in the recent past. In this framework, the so‐called earthquake early warning systems (EEWS) try to exploit the short time interval between the earthquake occurrence and the arrival of the destructive wavetrain to warn the population or to perform some automatic actions that can reduce damages induced by the ground shaking. A rapid analysis of real‐time data from seismic stations deployed in the source region is the key element in such system. During the last three decades, the EEWS is increasingly used to...
