I'm sorry, the only place I can find this information is on this thread. RSOE-EDIS map says nothing. This would be classed as a major event, I'm sure. Can you confirm? I could not find this info in your link.

This has been a really weird week, with the Arizona shootings, deep freeze in the deep south, Australian floods... It's starting to feel like we're actually living in one of those apocalyptic movies.

I think this thread deserves more attention.
I would really like to see more interest in the community about this.
I assume most just haven't seen the headline yet.
Hopefully someone will randomly come forward with more information.
