Some good news, previously issued tsunami warnings have been lifted.

CBS News -
The United States Geological Survey said the 8.2 quake hit 56 miles
east-southeast of the tiny town of Perryville at 10:15 p.m. local time at a
depth of about 21 miles. Perryville is some 500 miles southwest of
Anchorage, Alaska's biggest city. There were no warnings issued for Anchorage.

I'm in Japan and received a possible tsunami warning text a couple of hours ago from the local authorities, which has since been cancelled.

That was not far from my cousin's homestead. I will inquire.

Oops! Not near at all.

I think I will just put an OUT OF ORDER
sticker on my head and call it a day.

Biggest US quake in decades. Fortunately no significant tsunami, and quite a ways from (most) civilization.

Two things: I had not realized that Anchorage had a 9.2 quake in ‘64 (which if my understanding is correct, would be like 150-200x larger quake than the World Series quake of ‘89.) smiley-shocked003

Secondly, apparently when the initial danger had passed, the article I read said that the Alaskan public radio station started playing an earthquake playlist (I feel the earth - move - under my feet…)

Mother Nature's approval of Alaska's first Olympic Gold Medalist. Like loud clapping.

The ‘64 quake is still way bigger then anything since in Alaska. As they say it isn’t just the quality but the quantity in this case the duration. ‘64 went on for 4 minutes. Imagine being in a house being shaken for that long.

The 1964 quake was a pretty big deal. It altered the coastline.

Or for four and a half minutes on the eighth floor of a high-rise:

Big quakes don’t tend to shake harder, they just last longer.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

That '64 earthquake did quite a bit of damage in my little CA town: Eleven dead and the downtown business area was destroyed. It happened in the early morning hours.

I was watching TV last night and my Watch went off three times, telling me about AK quakes.





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

Oh yes, the '64 quake cracked the sidewalk in front of my parents house here in Seattle!

My dad was sent up to AK by his bank to help facilitate emergency loans for reconstruction after it happened.

Didn't even receive the phone-blaring tsunami alarm here in Anchorage (on my phone, at least - others did)
