4/11/2012 8.2M Earthquake off the West Coast of Northern Sumatra

Seismic Monitor, showing the recent quakes off the West coast of Northern Sumatra.

At 6° or ~660 km, nearest the epicenter showing the immediate arrival of P waves.

At 90° or ~9900 km, showing the lag between the arrival of the first P wave and the arrival of first S wave.

In cases like this, where luckily no one was hurt in either the earthquake itself or a resulting tsunami, I feel comfortable in saying, this is pretty cool to see data like this with such energy!
