To all on the west coast, "thanks for all the fish"! If I ask you to take me seriously will you?
I am telling all of you now to leave while you can please & thank you! If you do not heed this warning you will perish.


West coast of Oregon here.

Thanks for the warning, but tonight is my bridge night.

This is a great website to view various incidents/info worldwide- earthquakes, volcanoes, HAZMAT, etc.

I am not sure if any of you remember, but not that long ago, back in 2017, geologists were saying that 2018 was going to bring many major earthquakes.

Upsurge in big earthquakes predicted for 2018 as Earth rotation slows

So far it seems that prediction was right.


Dutchsinse is predicting more quakes will occur:

The quake woke me up here in Anchorage. It was kind of like being shook to be woken up by a kid! From dead sleep to lying there, "is it over?" I mentioned it was like dredged chicken being shook of the excess coating!

Only this morning did I see the magnitude, epicenter, and tsunami warning/evacuations. After the 2011 Tohoku, Japan quake, I think everybody near a coast should be on alert and know what to do.

Tsunami recorded in Alaska of 6 inches to 0.8 feet (Kodiak). Looks like the severity was low enough to not cause a true tsunami alert. USGS started deploying more buoys after Japan just for this reason... to give warning. Looks like the system works!

I did not feel the aftershocks but did wake about every two hours last night for some unknown reason!

I love dutchinse, I have been watching him for awhile and he is on top of all of this.

The thing that worries me is what if the government was shut down and we had a major natural disaster. The government runs on a skeleton crew when shut downs happen, or people are working from home. If communication is knocked out that is a major problem.

Scary stuff.

The alerts systems are apparently being tested.
They are reporting now that Hawaiian governor David Ige forgot his twitter password?
Apparently not near the computer that flashed the alert.
The alert came from a terminal located in Mahukona?
That is why they have drug screening for reefer..

I pretty disappointed I slept through it.

Everyone I live with felt it, they said it lasted about 5 minutes.

We're in Kenai AK

When I tried to access tsunami.gov they had an announcement that read something like "the information on this site may not be up to date due to the government shutdown." Even though the shutdown ended yesterday! Go figure....anyway, I had trouble with that website. It didn't want to load, most likely due to the high traffic after the quake.

Dutchsinse put out another video. In this one he includes a clip from a previous one in which he warned something like this was going to happen in short order:



Edit: Here's another one he did after the one I just posted:

The AK tsunami alert went out (I should probably sign up for that one!). 5 minutes later the HI one went out. There is a large segment of the population of AK that vacation in HI, so they told me about being woken up by their phone but not by the quake itself!

Wonder what they could be testing the system for? Meteors? Volcanos? Earthquakes? Floods/tsunami? All of them have recently happened!

a reply to: dianajune

I am far enough away that besides the inconvenience of being woken up, there was not much on my end to do but roll over and go back to sleep!

Anchortown is on the tip of the Ring of Fire. We have two active volcanoes some 80 to 100 miles to the south. When those go... then that will be a different story!

I'm just glad it was not some other alert about some rouge country shooting things into the atmosphere towards me!

Hopefully if AK and HI put out more alerts, it won't be done unless it's the real deal.

Weird timing though. Alerts about incoming missiles, and now they're once again testing systems for quake alerts too.

I'd hate to see both come out at once.

With a 7.9 quake, there should be an aftershock of around 6.9 yet.
Not huge, but anything loosened by the first one, could fall with the second one.

Possible landslides on cliffs, avalanches, brick facades on buildings, dead tree limbs, chimneys...
Just something to keep in mind!

@USGS Tweet:

Alaska's magnitude 7.9 earthquake rattled Earth's plumbing 3,800 miles away in Florida, where water levels in 2 wells spiked within minutes. How can this happen? Find out at pubs.usgs.gov...



The most common type of observed ground-water response is an instantaneous water-level offset, or step, which may be either an increase or a decrease and may occur near or far from the epicenter. Recovery to the pre-earthquake water level can be so rapid that no change will be detected if the water level is measured infrequently, or it may take as long as days or months. Steps can be large enough to make a well flow at land surface, or render it dry. The 1998 M5.2 Pymatuning earthquake in northwestern Pennsylvania caused about 120 local household-supply wells to go dry within 3 months after the earthquake (Fleeger and others, 1999). The 2002 M7.9 Denali Fault earthquake in Alaska caused a 2-foot water-level rise in a well in Wisconsin, more than a thousand miles from the epicenter.

pubs.USGS.gov (link from tweet) - Earthquakes—Rattling the Earth’s Plumbing System.

Today's earthquake in the Gulf of Alaska changed water levels in 2 Florida wells! That is pretty crazy! I guess it is one more indicator that we are all connected down here on earth.

ETA: There have been over 90 EQs of M3 or higher since the M7.9 hit some 13 hours ago!

Happy everyone's okay. The tsunami which, of course luckily didn't happen, may have impacted here with a direct hit to some cities. Waking up to the news earlier this morning was alarming. This was an updated warning to us all that EQs/tsunamis can happen at anytime.

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?


JUST offshore?...it's at least a thousand miles from mainland US

330 from Anchorage, AK and 150 maybe from Kodiak, AK. Had it been the right type of quake to cause a tsunami, it would have wreaked havok on the coastal towns. Places like Valdez, Seward and Kodiak could have been wiped out by a large one and were hit hard in 1964. You really should look at a map and do you understand tsunami's?

The 9.2 in 1964 caused a tsunami that hit the northwest mainland and did a lot of damage, even south of northern California. It's very possible it could happen again.

Tsnaumi's travel at up to 600mph, so in about an hour and a half, if people are lucky, they'll be able to evacuate fast enough to save their lives.

That region is know for massive wave, as a result of the ring-of-fire.

And you can see some of the 1964 tsunami right here. Look at ~4 & ~7 minutes into the video.

The EU orchestrated this earthquake close to Alaska, the purpose is to attempt to create a tsunami that would then hit the coast of south america in an attempt to disrupt de-colonialization in those regions away from the King of Spain and other European neo-feudalists.
