Something cooking on Cascadia

We had today at least three large M5.8 M5.4 and now M5.9 #earthquakes  and the increase in magnitude showing these are not aftershocks!

San Andreas waking up for movie release ? (Updated! see in comment)
Glitch or something else? You decide.

Our iQuakeMini notification servers monitor and store in databases earthquake events as they are reported, by monitoring sites like USGS, JMA and EMSC. The database is scanned in parallel to push notifications to iQuakemini users who defined areas in their settings. 

We saw that an M5.1 notification was sent during the May 28 night but nothing appeared in  iQuakeMini's list. Same on USGS maps and servers! Only explanation is that it had been removed from the USGS public maps and lists.

All events have an event ID, which we store in our databases, and using this ID we can pull the original USGS post for an event it still exist ....
Surprise ... the event is there  http://goo.gl/lvEoOv

This means there was an M5.1 earthquake in California on the May 28 to 29 night, and that for some reason, it was removed from USGS public lists of events. It is still there however if you know its event ID.

Wonder if someone at USGS thought it would be best to avoid showing California quakes during release of the San Andreas movie.

Or maybe it was just Aurora or Excalibur the secret hyper sonic planes being tested over the Desert.

*Japan Chichi-shima
Huge earthquake initially measured at M8.5 by the JMA but to M7.8 by USGS is very deep (677 km).

This depth means little effect on the surface and no Tsunami danger for most regions in Pacific.

JMA report:  http://goo.gl/Mobw

Nevada quake downgraded to M4.8
Usually earthquakes are reviewed for quakes in other regions of the world. Local US quakes are measured in real time with enough precision and rarely reviewed to a full magnitude. Some dude at USGS doesn't want to frighten population maybe. In any case it was strong enough to trigger some highways shutdown and inspections and seems that  joints were dislodged...

A 4.8-magnitude earthquake shook Las Vegas and surrounding areas Friday morning, and the state closed a portion of the Spaghetti Bowl to inspect a ramp for possible damage, backing up traffic for miles.

Story
Tagline
We do Apps
Introduction
ORION Microsystems was founded in 1987. 

ORION Microsystems developed system software and firmware (BIOS) for rugged mobile computers in civilian, military and aeronautical applications. 

We worked on half a dozen tablet PCs. Latest were Electronic Flight Bags (EFB) used on business jets, commercial aircraft 737, and even military. Hardware based on Intel chipsets from 440 to core i5/i7. We also designed monitoring apps to check system performance, status & temperatures inside EFB, batteries and charging system.

ORION MIcrosystems is well known for NEC4WIN, an Antenna Simulation software sold on 'internet' since the 90s (FidoNet and Compuserve).  Many colleges, universities, thousands of Ham Radio and many antenna design companies in North America and Europe are still using our software. Some picture of our profile are antenna radiation patterns created on NEC4WIN/VM.

We moved our main focus to mobile apps, iPads and iPhones.

iQuakeLite was one of the few hundred apps selected in the iPad Store Grand Opening. It is still free and you can download that from http://bit.ly/iNju1l
