USGS changes earthquake notification alerts protocol

05/10/2011 22:31

After the magnitude 9.0 Tohoku earthquake on March 11, 2011, a change was made in ENS to enable the 'aftershock exclusion' feature by default.  This filters out notifications for all but the largest aftershocks, eliminating the large deluge of aftershock notifications after a large mainshock.
