I have this on GOOD AUTHORITY! From Quake Watch guy, PuterMan (he was asked about this 1 a.m. event not showing on the charts) -
The Bayou Cornme seismic activity monitors are out of service!
They have been taken down except for 2 of them. He sent the following:
It would seem that LA11 is defunct – has not been working since last Thursday. The IRIS code that gets those seismograms gets the last available day if there is no current data so 158, a partial day, is being returned.
I would say from the way that one is looking the LA11 seismo may have been withdrawn. It looks as if it is the same for the 01 and 02 channels of LA10 as well.
In fact it is worse than that. Looking in BUD I find that the only 2 recorders working are LA10, channel 03 and LA 12. All the rest stopped on day 157 as the last whole data day.
If this is true then it means they have removed public access from these recorders as I can see LA14 is working in CERI

“Excuse the French, but what a bunch of bastards!
It looks as if all except those two have been removed from public scrutiny. As you are well aware we can do little with the CERI seismograms and have to accept what we are given. By removing the access to the IRIS versions of these we are being prevented from doing any analysis on the data.
I consider this to be a serious loss and questions should be asked.”

LA17.02 is working as well. So that is it. Just 2 seismos.
So, excuse my French – what a bunch of bastards!
UPDATE, June 13
U. of Memphis responds to inquiry -
“The CERI helicorders for the Bayou Corne seismic network are up and running with the exception of station LA12 which developed a problem yesterday.”
UPDATE, June 14
STILL NOT FIXED! They have taken most data away from public view! (see COMMENTS here for tech. details)
