Axial even more restless and the wiring is working.
At about 0630 GMT on April 24 (2330 Pacific Time - April 23, 2015) Axial Seamount deformation became much more active. Based on newly available data from the website maintained by Bill Chadwick of Oregon State University and NOAA/PMEL, the sea floor Bottom Pressure Tilt Sensor at the Central Caldera Site began to deflate. The event lasted about 12 hours and the drop was nearly 2 meters. In almost the same timeframe, the daily earthquake count went from less than a thousand events per day, to nearly 8,000 events/day for the brief period on the 24th of April according to the automatic tabulations provided by William Wilcock on his Blog Site.
