    Breaking story:


    1609 UTC, measured at 8.2 by USGS and 8.5 by the Japanese equivalent, just north of the December '04 quake. Tsunami warning issued, no word on if a tsunami actually materialized....

    http://wwwneic.cr.usgs.gov/neis/bulletin/neic_weax_l.html shows it SE of the Xmas event. There was something in Sci. Am. about expectations of more activity in that direction since it hadn't relaxed during the big quake. Getting closer to Toba as well --- anyone heard anything about any effort to monitor that beast as far as looking for effects of the recent activity?
