Hi all

Last 24 hours have been bad for me in terms of detecting earthquakes,
there has been a storm going on and my geophone picks up the wind and
the ocen movements on the beach, even if it is inside the house. Last
night at 03:19 UTC was a earthquake at size 2.88Ml at distance of 246km,
i think that might have been able to detect that earthquake, however
becose of the wind i am not sure if that i did detect the earthquake,
becose the noise from the wind might simple have drowned the signal from
the earthquake. Is there any good way for me to see if there is a
earthquake in the noise or not.
