Gravitational waves announcement

It appears gravitational waves have been detected. From what I've heard, they have a 5 sigma signal which they should announce in about ten minutes. (9:30 AM CST). Link to the NSF live stream of the gravitational wave announcement: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zyo4DFr4D4I

The energy release of the BH merge was what, ~10^50 J? I really hope most of that energy was converted into gravitational waves...
