Now looking at the potential of humans (including myself) with regard to understanding complex natural phenomena.

I just reviewed my earlier blogs with regard to when I first noticed the Sichuan 7.8M earthquake at 06:21 GMT, May 12th. I had signed off two hours earlier with the comment that all was quiet. My first comment after the quake showed up was at 13:41 (GMT)UTC. 7 hours
It occurs to me that maybe someone else could have noticed this event sooner and posted it somewhere appropriate.
How about right here?
I don't know when the notice of the quake was first posted on Dr. Master's Blog but it was not well followed there.
Everyone is welcome to post here but I am mainly interested in early information regarding earthquakes.

Some time has passed since I posted notice of ETS on the west coast. Last hours show continuation of the ETS event:

What this link is:
Probably the latest activity in Sichuan, CHINA.
someone POSTED a crit of the Chinese GOVERNMENT FOR ALLOWING FOLKS TO LAY UNDER RUBBLE AND VERY LIKELY Expire
Guess what? no government (including yours) has the capability to pull you out of the wreckage if the wreck is this big.
The aftershocks are ongoing. Imagine running a crane with aftershocks and trying to keep rescue workers (and 'quake victims) all safe.
You could not do it, I could not do it and Superman could not do it.
Noticed the readouts getting patchy last evening and just now the last hour readable is 1800 UTC May 13
Link to seismic current data:
Here's a link to local (Vancouver Island) seismic data for a couple of hours ago:
ETS shows up here on about a 14 month period. This one is just a bit late - it should have been mid April. When you see a number of stations showing similar (small amplitude) anomalies at the same time (stacked vertically on the display) it is an ETS event.
What does it mean?
Here are the local seismic station data

Or just Google Volcano "Chiaten"
Apparently experts had this mountain pegged as "dormant"
I just took my own advice and "googled Chiaten" - guess what?
My blog above was referenced from the spanish version of wunderground.
