Fire Weather Index (FWI) page added to web site

I have added a Fire Weather index page to the web site.  The basic page with a FWI graph is updated daily at 12:00.

There are more fire weather related info that I want to add to the page, with time permitting I will complete the page in a week or two.

I would like to encourage all owners of private weather stations in South Africa to get involved in Fire Weather calculations.

The page is here: http://secundaweather.co.za/fwi

Here is today’s FWI graph:

Earthquake: Eastern Turkey, 7.4M

The 7.4 magnitude quake in Turkey yesterday was recorded by the seismometer.

See seismogram below.  Also visible is an aftershock at about 21:22 UTC, I guess it is the 6.0 magnitude quake registered at 20:45 UTC by USGS.
