Two and Counting…

WATCH the Earth move LIVE

Station E1TX has recorded two seismographs on the EQ-1 Educational Vertical Seismograph within the last 24 hours.  The first earthquake, a small M3.1 in Puerto Rico, can be easy to miss on a screenshot view, but an extraction of the data confirms wave phase arrivals at expected times for E1TX on 04/01/2018 at 22:44hrs UTC.  The second, very large M6.8 Bolivian earthquake occurred later in the day (now 04/02/2018) at 13:40hrs UTC.  The Bolivian seismogram recorded many wave phases – easily seen on the screenshot-  and thus TXESP has will have wave good recordings of the associated teleseismic waves.
