Reported 15 minutes ago:


The U.S. Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said Monday evening that a magnitude 7.8 earthquake had occurred off the coast of Russia's Kamchatka Peninsula.

"Based on preliminary earthquake parameters... hazardous tsunami waves are possible for coasts located within 300 km (186 miles) of the earthquake epicenter," the center wrote in an official message.

Tsunami waves, however, were unlikely to reach Kamchatka's eastern coast, some 500 km (310 miles) away.

The quake was followed by several aftershocks, including a couple above magnitude 5.0.

The earthquake was originally reported as a 7.4 magnitude, but it was subsequently upgraded to 7.8.

While I understand the rule I really dislike needing to use the article title from a source..

The title of this thread reads like the Tsunami wave is a guaranteed thing yet reading the article says" waves are possible"

Ring of fire shaking abit lately.

Think they said the tsunami
threat is about .5 meters.

www.rt.com...



The Kamchatka unit of the Russian emergencies ministry said it expected the tsunami wave to be no bigger than 0.5 meters. It told Interfax that Nikolskoe residents reported feeling tremors as did some people living in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, the provincial capital. The quake comes shortly after a powerful spewing of ash from the Klyuchevskoy volcano in Kamchatka. The ash plume rose to a height of 6 kilometers above sea level, prompting an advisory for planes flying in the region, local media reported.

Interesting earlier thought I felt an EQ earlier but nothing local. That location is quite a distance however. Hope the aftershocks stay the to area not affecting the vulnerable faults here.

Just saw this warning. Let's hope it forms no tsunami, and if it does that it only hits areas that are uninhabited.

What?

How did they know? Is that what you're saying? Russia announced this 12 hours before it occurred? I'm confused.

They had a 6.2 earthquake at or near before this bigger one i.e a precursor to the big earthquake.

aye aye aye, as someone who's in Seattle right on the Sound its crazy that I had no idea this major EQ happened earlier... Scary stuff to think how oblivious people can be if they arent glued to their TV/computer/etc..

So, no more tsunami threat? was the initial threat just for Russia/Alaska?

Oh , it's just what I'm saying. Not an official statement. I looked on my Quake watch app in the list of latest biggest quakes and it was in there about 12 and half hours before this big one . Just seemed odd to see that so I'm calling it a precursor

EDIT: Russia didn't announce anything. USGS recorded both of these quakes. They're my sources of the details . I use mostly USGS for my sources when I post on here
