I find it staggering that these agencies can be so far out. Much as I hate the concept of global anything there is definitely a case here for a truly GLOBAL seismic centre rather than all these ones that say they are but really are not.
I blame the programmers since the data is the same, it must be the programs. Of course if the programmer has allowed the scientists to 'tweak' the parameters then that would explain the mess. Scientists should not be allowed to touch anything.
I still blame the programmers for allowing them to do it.

Keep your head up tonight. I'm also in the area and know a couple of things that I can't talk about. I'm sure you're prepared. Just a heads up
