We have returned to the regular data process since March 25. The data between March 11-24 are to be filled succeedingly. In addition, we started a frequent update service in every 4 hours, first for 4U 1608-52 (ATel #3237) and Swift J164449.3+573451 (ATel #3244).

The ISS-opration building in JAXA Tsukuba space center was damaged by the earthquake on March 11, 2011. The building contains the computers which receive MAXI telemetry data from NASA and store them. The computers have stopped since then. MAXI data also stopped and we can not issue alerts. We think it will take more than a week for the recovery. The MAXI itself in orbit has no problem and continues the observation. The data will be sent to Tsukuba space center afterwards.
