The earthquake information delivered through Bigquake notifications is
preliminary. Subsequent review usually results in some revision to the
data, and all users are advised to check the USGS earthquake program
pages at [link to earthquake.usgs.gov] for updates. Data users are
cautioned to consider carefully the provisional nature of the information
before using it for decisions that concern personal or public safety or
the conduct of business that involves substantial monetary or operational
consequences. Earthquakes are a common occurrence, and many are either
not large enough to cause damage or not located sufficiently close to
populations centers to produce damage. This e-mail does not imply an
impending threat.

Bigquake is an informational tool and NOT an earthquake or tsunami
warning system. The USGS does not produce tsunami warnings. For the
information about tsunamis, please refer to the information given in
the NOAA website [link to tsunami.gov] .
