There's been a 5.4 in Northern Sumatra right under Toba. Quite a caldera there and maybe worth watching. Since we have a Yellowstone thread and this is both volcano and quake related I though I'd give it special treatment and its own thread,.

I posted this over at Quake watch

Let us hope this is the only quake and pray Toba does not awaken.
