Samoa eathquake and tsunami warning...

After some difficulties over the summer with the seismometer and the computer that is recording the data, we think that we now have it set up properly.

I have just seen on the news that there has been a series of earthquakes, including one at magnitude 8.0, in the Samoa Islands region of the Pacific. Tsunami warnings were issued, and the waves were expected to reach Hawaii.

Hopefully, we'll have managed to pick up the earthquake - will post again tomorrow with a seismograph if we have. In the meantime, USGS reports are here and a Google News search will provide you with plenty of information about the earthquakes and the areas affected.
