I see (I'm from Europe) For now the same map is online http://safecast.org/tilemap/ though requires internet connection and misses some of the layering. The iOS app (iPhones are not unpopular in Europe) offers the same capability. As all of this is work by volunteers, we hope someone will pick up the Windows or Linux version ;)

@Joi talking about innovation and Safecast on TED
“Remember before the internet?” asks Joi Ito. “Remember when people used to try to predict the future?” In this engaging talk, the head of the MIT Media Lab skips the future predictions and instead shares a new approach to creating in the moment: building quickly and improving constantly, without waiting for permission or for proof that you have the right idea.
