Information 
If you click on the buoy you will see a telephone number that you can call. I used to telephone the buoys for another forum to get the latest updates. Problem is when those buoys are in event mode for whatever reason, the call line gets jammed because maritime information is needed by ships that maybe in the vicinity.

When you do call you get a recorded message that gives you details of what's happening which can be vital to ocean-going vessels and to those who are interested in events surrounding major EQs. The recorded messages are updated as needed.

Those tsunami event buoys will stay active for about 24 hours after the threat has passed.

the current graph is showing .12 meters deviation :) 12/100ths of one meter. Maybe a shark swam too close? :)

About two years ago, the tsunami event buoys were going wild in the Bay of Bengal. There were no EQs, no large storms, no events of any kind to explain why the buoys were frantically signaling a tsunami. Turns out there were a large group of sperm whales who were mating in the Bay and were slapping the shit out of the buoys in their enthusiasm for mating. A couple of buoys had to be repaired but they had to wait until the sperm whales were done...well....sperming. Nature > man's gizmos.

I don't mean to be dismissive of being alert and watching :) But yeah :) Not interested in uninformed doom either :) I'm interested in this and will be for a few days because a 6.9-7.0 IS a significant event and especially that close to a volcano.

If it's a precursor and not the main event, even more so, which of course we can't know at this point. But with that in mind I checked out the history of the area and this is more than interesting to me. Just under 6 days ago, a 6.5 right under the volcano:

https://www.volcanodiscovery.com/rinjani...0-hik.html

Quote:Following the strong magnitude 6.5 earthquake yesterday, which occurred right under the volcano, landslides and mudflows triggered by the quake damaged some of the access routes to the National Park and partially made them impassable.
According to new reports, a large number of hikers are currently trapped in the park, about 500 in the area of Segara Anakan and 60 in Batu Ceper.
Rescue efforts by helicopters and search teams are underway. The volcano itself does not seem to have been affected so far by the earthquake.


If we get another in the next week or two, I'll start seriously wondering if there's a pattern. 4 will convince me. I remember the two weeks leading up to Tohoku. There were probably a dozen 6.0 to 7.3 quakes in the general vicinity (offshore) before the big one struck.

If a similar pattern develops within a month in this area I'll get more interested in watching with each iteration. Especially if magnitudes show a general uptrend.

Recent eruptive history of Rinjani includes a couple of explosive ash eruptions about a 2 months apart in Aug/Sep 2016. Before that something similar about 8 months earlier in Dec 2015.

Before that it was quiet for 5 years, but it's been active irregularly since mid-1800's with breaks between eruptions from 2 to 30 years.

just some background. :) Obviously a new eruption will make the whole event more interesting too, but future earthquakes will occupy most of my interest.

Used to be the chicken/egg riddle. Now it's the volcano or the EQ.

Ooooor, a volcano erupts, releasing lava, which has to come from somewhere. And what happens when that chamber gets drained?

It refills as in Bardarbunga -
