Here is info on it, and it seems it's an 8.2.

I don't know if anyone else has noticed but there have been several major earthquakes occurring in the past 2-3 weeks.

On January 10th there was a 7.6 north of Honduras.
On January 14th there was a 7.1 near the coast of Peru.
On January 19th there was a 6.3 in the Gulf of California, and now the 8.2 in the Gulf of Alaska

Isn't 8.0 about as strong as they get? Like a CAT-5 Hurricane.

8.2 seems pretty bad. That whole area looks pretty shaky for the past couple of days but with that 8.2 being just offshore, really fearful of tsunami. Was only six miles deep - I don't know if that makes it more or less likely though?

Found this and it doesn't sound good:

"Tsunamis are more likely to happen from shallower and larger earthquakes than deeper or smaller ones."

Info from here

The Sumatra earthquake in 2004 was a 9.3 I think? (9.1 actually) Scientists believe that it could go up to 10 or 12 but none have occurred in modern times that strong in the past 100 years or so.

Here is a link with the strongest earthquakes on record.

earthquake.usgs.gov...

But an 8.2 is a really strong earthquake.

Thankyou. I hope the depth and rock formation prevents a large tsunami.

What about the volcano in the Philippines. I wonder if this has something to do with it.

Sorry to say but they are too worried about protecting the silly rights of those that stayed in the USA illegally. But God bless their hearts, oh, maybe their minds would be better.
