report on behalf of the MAXI team:

We examined the MAXI/GSC all-sky X-ray images (2-20 keV) obtained
in the orbit after the LVC trigger
S190513bm at 2019-05-13 20:54:28.747 UTC (GCN 24522).

At the trigger time of S190513bm, the high-voltage of MAXI/GSC was on, 
and it was turned off at T0+864 sec (+14.4 min).
The instantaneous field of view of GSC at the GW trigger time covered 4% of the 90% credible region
of the bayestar sky map, in which we found no significant new X-ray source.
The one-orbit (92 min) scan of GSC covered 87% of the 90% credible region 
of the bayestar skymap.
The scan was mainly performed by the degraded GSC_3 camera.

No significant new source was found in the error region with the one-orbit scan.
The 1-sigma averaged upper limit obtained 
from the scan was 50 mCrab at 2-10 keV.

If you require information of X-ray flux by MAXI/GSC at specific coordinates,
please contact the submitter of this circular by email.
