Alaskan Earthquake

An earthquake being reported down here at 8.2 and quite shallow off the Aleutians. Take care in the PNW

8.2 is pretty severe , I always worry that any good shake on the "ring of fire" might pop other quakes loose.

Some quakes are "overdue" .

Supposed to be some significant currents, minimal waves.

USCG Sector Juneau issued a tsunami warning for as far south as Cape Decision (south of Sitka) on channel 16. I was south of that so went back to sleep after noting that the watch stander pronounced Seward "Seaward". Apparently there was quite a traffic jam of people leaving Seward.

I am out to sea and directly in the Tusnami warning area.

It was a bit scary for sure. I brought the skiff in, and was preparing to move out of the anchorage to open water when the Tusnami warning center issued the all clear.

BTW Seward was evacuated. That is a big deal!

We were asleep at anchor in Cascade Bay (Prince William Sound) when the warning came in. A nearby sailboat swung by yelling and honking their horn to wake us, we pulled anchor, and headed for deep water, where we drifted for a couple hours until the all clear. Unnerving but good practice I suppose. Glad there was no wave!

Not news. It's been happening for a long long time. The mountainous southern rim of the Kenai Peninsula; Kenai Fjords, Seldovia, etc is a piece of Cape Mendocino, headed to Japan at about 1cm/year I am told.

Yep, the warning systems were put in place to avert another tragedy like we experienced in 64, as you are well aware as a Alaskan yourself

BTW we were just down port bainbridge, from where you took that photo of my dogs and I, very exposed to any tsunami.

Thank goodness for satellite communications!

I was in Seward working on my boat that's on the hard. Could feel the quake, which lasted a really long time, though not violent. Evacuated around 10:30pm and drove up the highway out of town a couple of miles to higher ground. Finally got the all-clear around 12:30am. A very interesting night. I need a nap.

The oral history of the Haisla (First Nations people who live in Kitamaat/Kitimat) say that when they first arrived here, it was nothing but scrub brush from the high tide line to where the trees were big enough to get wood for masks.

That spot is 5.5 Kilometres inland over flat and pretty much level ground. Japan's tsunami went 10K inland.

About 1/3 of the people in Kitimat live 'down the hill' at about sea level. We live 'up the hill' atop about a 75' high alluvial fan from a retreating glacier.

With such a narrow, long, steep sided channel here, even being mid channel could be really hairy if a tsunami marches up the channel

For the benefit of the others;

The day after Good Friday, 1964, an Army helicopter was sent to assess the situation in Seward. They reported that no one could have survived.

HAH! Think of the real estate opportunities in Modesto or Merced! I've got dibs on the Owens Valley Marina.

There used to be a very large mural in Los Angeles depicting a shattered over pass on I-10 and the sea lapping at a sign "YUMA NEXT EXIT".

I've been waiting for that my whole life.California could be a nice place to live after the tsunami.

There would finally be a reason to visit Stateline, NV!
