A brief update on the status of Gemini North after Friday's earthquakes. The telescope, instruments, and enclosure were carefully inspected by the day-crew who were at the summit when both earthquakes hit. As of today, all systems have checked out with no reported damage, and we successfully opened and observed on-sky Friday night and over the weekend from the Hilo Base Facility. We continue to closely monitor the on-going Kilauea volcanic activity and seismic tremors.
