HI gang :)

major quake occurring as I type this
a Mw 7.8, Scotia Sea, between South America and Antarctica

see my online seismo http://www.sydneystormcity.com/seismograms.htm

here's a screenshot before the trace started overwriting the earlier recording.....
there is a quake at the top of the gram, this is the 6.8 from same region that occurred on Saturday 16th



This event is ~ 50-100 km east of a 6.1 and a 6.8 that have occurred in the same region over the last 4- 5 days


cheers
Dave
