[1] The real-time performance of the tc-Pd on-site early
warning algorithm currently is being tested within the
California Integrated Seismic Network (CISN). Since
January 2007, the algorithm has detected 58 local
earthquakes in southern California and Baja with moment
magnitudes of 3.0 Mw 5.4. Combined with newly
derived station corrections the algorithm allowed for rapid
determination of moment magnitudes and Modified
Mercalli Intensity (MMI) with uncertainties of ±0.5 and
±0.7 units, respectively. The majority of reporting delays
ranged from 9 to 16 s. The largest event, the July 29 2008
