So going off topic slightly ... if there was an incoming missile would anyone be manning the alert system why the US gov was shut down? Interesting

Biggest tsunami on record actually happened in Alaska in 1958 !


World's Tallest Tsunami


A tsunami with a record run-up height of 1720 feet occurred in Lituya Bay, Alaska

On the night of July 9, 1958, an earthquake along the Fairweather Fault in the Alaska Panhandle loosened about 40 million cubic yards (30.6 million cubic meters) of rock high above the northeastern shore of Lituya Bay. This mass of rock plunged from an altitude of approximately 3000 feet (914 meters) down into the waters of Gilbert Inlet (see map below). The impact generated a local tsunami that crashed against the southwest shoreline of Gilbert Inlet. The wave hit with such power that it swept completely over the spur of land that separates Gilbert Inlet from the main body of Lituya Bay. The wave then continued down the entire length of Lituya Bay, over La Chaussee Spit and into the Gulf of Alaska. The force of the wave removed all trees and vegetation from elevations as high as 1720 feet (524 meters) above sea level. Millions of trees were uprooted and swept away by the wave. This is the highest wave that has ever been known.



ETA: The 1958 EQ had a 7.7 magnitude

I'm in Anchorage and we felt it here. Not so strong here but it lasted a very long time. Luckily Anchorage is protected against tsunami's by natural barriers but it could be bad for towns just east or west of us. The first reports should be in about 30 minutes from Kodiak.

Downgraded to 7.9, depth at 25km

That didn't take long. Seems like it is usually about .3 less than the initial report as a general rule of thumb.

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


No, the Richter scale is different than the one they use to assign Categories for hurricances (which is a simple linear scale based on sustained wind speeds).

For earthquakes they use a "logarithmic scale", which means that each single digit increase on the scale represents a ten-fold increase in the energy released by the quake.

So, an 8.0 earthquake is 10 times more powerful than a 7.0...and, for example, a 9.0 is 1,000 times more powerful than a 6.0.

Most people are asleep right now...

I hope there's enough warning to evacuate the coastal areas.

Times like these I wish I was still in the army, in my Hawk, ready to go.

Just had a quick look at your threads, you've predicted a large quake pretty much everywhere in the world. I wouldn't call them premonitions more like .. have plenty of wild guesses and you'll soon get one right. Anyway I'm the UK the only tsunami ill get is when I sit down in the bath too quickly

Yes...A phone call may be the better option.

This is bad.

Everyone is sleeping in their beds right now and the tsunami is expected to hit the Alaskan and BC coastlines within the next 2 to 3 hours.

For those of you who know anyone who lives on those coastlines, pick up the phone and call them if you can...

Wake them up so they have enough time to get to higher ground, we have no idea right now how bad the waves are going to be !
