Well, there's a warning posted now for southeastern Alaska.

Did I read that right? was that a 24 metre jump?

"I warn you, whoever you are, oh you who wish to probe the arcanes of nature, if you do not find within yourself that which you seek, neither shall you find it outside.
If you ignore the excellencies of your own house, how do you intend to find other excellencies?
In you is hidden the treasure of treasures, Oh man, know thyself and you shall know the Universe and the Gods."

Actually, it was just under 14 meters... in the course of 15 seconds.

If you look at all the reported data you will see that there was a spike at one of the reporting intervals:

2013 01 05 09 07 45 3 2739.072
2013 01 05 09 07 30 3 2739.083
2013 01 05 09 07 15 3 2739.064
2013 01 05 09 07 00 3 2739.055
2013 01 05 09 07 00 2 2739.074
2013 01 05 09 06 45 3 2739.077
2013 01 05 09 06 30 3 2752.514
2013 01 05 09 06 15 3 2739.054
2013 01 05 09 06 00 3 2739.095
2013 01 05 09 06 00 2 2739.070
2013 01 05 09 05 45 3 2739.042
2013 01 05 09 05 30 3 2739.079

Given that the water column height data is reported every 15 seconds (at least on sensor/monitor/channel 3), and given that the data surrounding the anomalous "spike" at 09:06:30 remains virtually unchanged, it is at least feasible, but more probably very likely, that the "spike" was an erroneous report, or something other kind of error.

Thanks Czero, them data streams are not a strong point of mine in comprehending :tu:

"I warn you, whoever you are, oh you who wish to probe the arcanes of nature, if you do not find within yourself that which you seek, neither shall you find it outside.
If you ignore the excellencies of your own house, how do you intend to find other excellencies?
