Tel-Aviv has 90 Seconds to Enter Bomb Shelter

The map tells you how long you have to reach shelter in the event of a rocket attack anywhere in Israel (yes, it's come to this). Those of you who read Hebrew will note that the band of Tel Aviv and its environs have two minutes to reach shelter. Not any more. MyBackYard just got a little closer.

The IDF Home Front Command has shortened the warning time for Tel Aviv area residents against incoming missiles from two minutes to 90 seconds, largely due to Hizbullah and Hamas’ improved missiles.

Aren't you glad we developed Iron Dome to protect the IDF bases? What could go wrong?
