I really feel like I'm missing out. I've been waiting for about a year to feel another good EQ and this thing happens around four hundred miles from me an hour ago and I didn't feel a thing.

Crazy, I guess that's lucky.

Yes you're lucky.

Are there Volcanoes near there? I think it's a volcano chain

There's volcanoes alright. I live near one of them. Not too sure how far the epicenter is from any of them though. Here's a map of volcanoes in AK

Somewhat related, a volcano erupted in Japan today too

There are several volcanoes near this quake, but given the depth and epicenter location, I can just about guarantee this had nothing to do with the volcanoes and is a subduction zone quake. And they just reduced it down to 6.7- which I more agree with given that I am looking at the raw seismic data and saw it come in. 7.0 was a bit ambitious. I estimated 6.4 to 6.6. Several small aftershocks have happened, and would make this seem to NOT be any kind of foreshock. But you never know...

Curiously, Yellowstone barked back up a couple of local small quakes soon after those waves went through the park. I've seen this happen before with Alaska quakes. Something about them seems to make Yellowstone fidgety. But all is calm now.... for the moment.

Thanks TA

But where is it saying 6.7? It came up as 6.8 originally, then updated to 7.0 . I just checked USGS and see the 7.0


EDIT
Nevermind I'm seeing 6.7 now
Thanks

Check it again, and refresh the page. It's a 6.7.

OMG. They KILLED my avatar. I can't find it, it's gone.

Nice. I was just cruising along, minding my own business, not bothering anyone, and BAM. They kill my pic.

a guy named Frank who is a prophet of doom will shortly be taking credit for this quake. He called that one brother! We'll sort of

Ummm...no. He called a 9.8 on San Andreas Fault.....so.....can't really take credit.

Reason and logic never stops a prophet of doom worth his salt.
