:laugh:

Was probably some other EQ. I'm in Anchorage and didn't know anything about it until five minutes ago.

Truth is, 7.0+ EQs happen all the time up here. Usually 2-3 times a year. The thread was kind of a joke. Guess nobody got it. :(

A Tsunami Warning is in effect which includes the Alaska coastal areas from Nikolski, Alaska to Attu, Alaska.

This message is advisory only for other areas of California, Oregon, Washington, British Columbia, and Alaska.

At 0:30 AM Alaskan Standard Time on December 19, an earthquake with preliminary magnitude 7.3 occurred 70 miles/113 Km southeast of Amchitka, Alaska. (Refer to the United States Geological Survey for official earthquake parameters.) This earthquake may have generated a tsunami. If a tsunami has been generated, the waves will first reach Adak, Alaska at 1:16 AM AKST on December 19. Estimated tsunami arrival times and maps along with safety rules and other information can be found on the WCATWC web site.
