You must read these reports carefully.  It contains the statement, "This
information is preliminary and subject to revision."

I'll bet they revise the report to say it didn't happen at a different time
and place than they said it didn't happen.

I smell a cover-up.  I wonder what REALLY didn't happen.

Does this mean that there was an earthquake with no energy release in
Southern Alaska, or that there wasn't an earthquake?  If there wasn't an
earthquake, how did they determine it didn't happen precisely at the times
indicated?
