*** CHRISTMAS / HOLIDAY HOURS ***
CrisisForums.org will be on "holidays" from Dec 22-31, and will resume full operations on Jan 1st, 2015 (assuming the world still exists). Quake reporting and twitter updates will cease during this time, and byline stories will be curtailed. Major stories, however, will continue to be updated throughout this period. Swing by when you can to stay updated, and we'll see you all in the new year at full steam. Have a safe and happy holiday!
