on behalf of the Suzaku WAM team, report:

The long-duration, very intense GRB 140619C has been observed by
Konus-Wind, MESSENGER (GRNS), Mars-Odyssey (HEND), INTEGRAL (SPI-ACS),
and Suzaku (WAM), so far, at about 81966 s UT (22:46:06).

We have triangulated it to a preliminary, 3 sigma error box whose 
coordinates are:
   RA(2000), deg                 Dec(2000), deg
   233.018 (15h 32m 04s) -25.599 (-25d 35' 55")
   233.298 (15h 33m 12s) -25.530 (-25d 31' 48")
   232.810 (15h 31m 14s) -26.672 (-26d 40' 18")
   232.738 (15h 30m 57s) -25.666 (-25d 39' 56")
   233.252 (15h 33m 00s) -24.382 (-24d 22' 57")
The error box area is 0.549 sq. deg, and its maximum
dimension is 2.3 deg (the minimum one is 0.426 deg).

This box may be improved.

The time history and spectrum will be given in a forthcoming GCN Circular.
