Such A thing does not surprise me.
I have been watching data from the USGS for
maybe 10 years now and I feel if you
are not an insider you will not
receive any realtime reports.

They seem to want to review everything
and analyze it before reporting it.

They seem to fear the liability of being wrong.

If you want real time data you are going
to have to get a Geophysics degree and
work in the field for 20 years then if they
happen to like you, you might get a front row
seat working there analyzing EQs as they come in.

I think they man their center only with
Geophisicist who are nearing the end of their career.

It is a kind of award to have the jobs they hold
in Golden Colorado for years of commendable service.

At least that is how I envision things there
based upon my scant communications with a 
Geophysicist named Willis Jacobs.

Willis Jacobs worked very hard and physical for Govmt before
he was working at Golden. He has been retired now for
quite sometime.

He was a Good Man.
Maybe one or more of you have heard of him. have now.
