5.0 M aftershock!

New Years Eve. 10 K from Anchor-town! Decent shaker! A great way to send off the year!

Even did a practice count down to NYE at 6 PM two minutes before!

Yet another large one! 7:45 am local.

UAF website is not responding. Guess (AK’s favorite new game: Guess The Magnitude).

Over 4.5, probably not 5.5 (‘‘twas a good shaker).

Low: 5.0
Me: 5.2

Was longer than the others. Quick check seems like the PAC Rim is busy over last 24 hours.

ETA: 5.4 M per UAF

I've lost faith in the "science" of seismology. That was significantly stronger and longer lasting than the New Years Eve 5.0 epicentered in almost the same location and depth. Far, far too many of these larger aftershocks are getting "adjusted" multiple times for me to believe this is a purely scientific measurement. Hell, the initial quake was "adjusted" at least 3 times that I am aware of... I believe the initial measurement was an 8, then "adjusted" to somewhere in the mid 6 range, then 7.2, before a final "adjustment" to a 7. I am not overly conspiratorial... I think the 911 inside job thing, crisis actors, HAARP, and whatnot are asinine horsecrap manifestations of insane fools, but in this case the "officials" can't seem to get their story straight without massaging the "science" and that reeks of them manipulating the numbers.

I was in Eagle River today. First time up there since before Thanksgiving. The damage they experienced is staggering. Haven't heard squat about it on the news beyond the collapsed house and the series of condos the Muni condemned. Businesses, some newer buildings like the Starbucks and McDonald's and some older like Alaska Club and the Value Village donation center massively damaged. Micky Ds lost their whole front windows and outer wall, the entire ceiling in Starbucks came down and most of their tile work popped out, the wall at Value Village is propped up with metal braces and the building is red tagged... nothing about any of it on the news. Alaska is trying to keep folks from panicking, IMO.

The "revised" number is ridiculous. And yeah, they are trying to keep people from panicking. So why not just tell the truth?

Sunday was bigger than 5.1. I didn't know about ER damage. They are keeping a lid on that. Heck, Ch11 had to move to a new news room but it "only a 7.0, er, 7.1." I said from the beginning that it was more towards 7.4 or larger which totally explains a "5.0 (revised)" aftershock (larger initial quake with larger aftershocks, not the convenient truth they are "officially" doling out).

I need to stock up on water. Maybe get a bag of Costco black beans and a bag of rice. And probably a pressure cooker. Be ready for massive duration power outage (cook on the grill until the propane runs out!).

I don't think we are over the pressure release from that fault line yet. Although they are getting further apart. We'll have another 5.0 around Easter (my guestimate).

I have been watching since the 7.1 and have several friends in Anchorage and surrounding area and no one has said much other than they are sick of the aftershocks, but 5's in themselves can be damaging and there seems to be a fair number of them.

Dunno if the numbers are being fudged or not, but myself personally,
I am worried that there is going to be a bigger one.

I am far enough away and far enough on the inside passage to not be effected unless the coast going down through Southeast unzips but that could happen....

back in Jan 2013 we had a 7.3ish that shook the island pretty good.
I wasn't here for that one, but have always worried that a bigger one is on the horizon and those northern quakes don't
