This is an event seen on all four of the reftek stations deployed at the time. Three of the stations triggered on the strong motion sensors as well!

We want to acknowledge the incredible amount of help we got from the Paso Robles Water Department crew. They were instrumental in getting the sites deployed in such a timely fashion.
