Import events and create incidents in TOAST¶
There are various ways for creating or importing incidents in TOAST:
SeisComP events are received via an active messaging connection and new incidents are created automatically, see: Receive events automatically via messaging.
Events are imported manually by user interaction, see: Import events from a SeisComP database manually.
Incidents are loaded from the TOAST database, see: Import incidents from TOAST database.
The user creates an incident manually, see: Create artificial incidents.
Receive events automatically via messaging¶
If a connection to a SeisComP system is configured, new events (and event
updates) are received via messaging and incidents are created if the magnitude
is larger than

Import events from a SeisComP database manually¶
To import an event from a SeisComP database and create an incident, use or press F4. Load events by choosing appropriate time span settings and clicking the refresh button. Filter the list using the funnel icon. Double click an event to create an incident which then is displayed in TOAST.
To trigger simulations for the new incident, press CTRL+N. See also Start simulations for events imported from database.
Import incidents from TOAST database¶
tsunami.database.loadLastDays to automatically load
incidents after starting TOAST.
Create artificial incidents¶
Incidents can also be created manually, for example for testing or in case a specific earthquake isn’t available in the connected SeisComP database. In case of manual creation, the incident does not contain an event reference.
