We had a 5.4 magnitude earthquake last night, the epicenter was about 100 km away from Stuttgart. I was about to go to bed, so I noticed the quake immediately. The LRGB website showed the earthquake data without any delay, including an automatically generated press release, but it still took radio stations about 20 minutes until they managed to broadcast the news! Good thing, radio stations are not the only source of fast information any more 🙂

[EDIT] Links are all dead by now, but here’s the plot I saved …
