I understand and my apologies, I realize I might have come off as pompous and blunt to you. Just wanted to make it clear to everyone reading this that for future references, if you hear about earthquakes or snow here, its normal. The only time I'd ever worry is if Mt. Spur went catastrophic. It boils every now and then and covers anchorage in ash, happened bout 2 or 3 years ago. But we don't mind it so much, just like to bottle the ash and sell it to people on Ebay for some quick money!

accepted, and what would be an acceptable quake mag
to report on in the future, i'm new here and since reporting
a 5.9 seems ignorant, please fill me in, so i do not make this
mistake in future threads, thanks.

In any other area that might be noteworthy, but not Alaska. 7.0 is huge, and 8.0 is astronomical.

reporting on Ats this un important news

I lived in Alaska for 4 years. Earthquakes are very very very frequent. Probably every single day. When living there, you get so used to them that nobody thinks anything of it.

And most of Alaska is very remote....so there usually is not any damage.

Here in anchorage area as well didn't feel a thing. But then again I have lived in a lot of earth quake prone areas. Only time it bugs me is if it's 6.1 or greater.

Why are you being so defensive??? Nobody is attacking you. We are just responding with our thoughts. That is what people do here. We converse back and forth.


Are you looking only for responses like this: OMG OMG OMG OMG we need to freak out!

Many people are not familiar with Alaska and especially in regards to earthquakes. Just passing on info about a place I know about.

Haha you probably only got so many comments because its Alaska, and the locals are gonna be like "Wait a minute..." when they see it. Keep reporting 5.9 quakes in high population areas. I understand people would immediately think catastrophe with HAARP being up here, but the way I see it, we're safest in the belly of the beast.

I didn't know so many other Alaskans frequented the site, this is good news!

the great Alaskan quake was a 9.2 in 1964
its been a while since a mag of that proportion
happened there, you might be due for another.
7. or higher , when was the last 6. and above there in
Alaska ?

no not at all, and that was evident as i pointed out earlier in my posts, i was a little
defensive when the other poster called my thread rubbish , but continued to post
in my rubbish thread, we have since resolved this.

also since i am being accused of suggesting panic
please provide a quote of me doing so.

Alright man, I'm gonna tell you right meow. Posting earthquake threads is fine with backed research and if the higher magnitudes are reported in high populated areas. What is not going to serve you well here is such volatile sensitivity. Quote where you are being accused of instilling panic, in my perspective, I read more of a rhetoric question thrown about for some chuckles on all sides. You're fine! Don't worry! Being defensive and sensitive is only going to make people frustrated that they have to explain that attacking you is not their intent.

Sorry sir but i believe calling my thread rubbish , on your first post is an attack
who would not be defensive? after a remark like that, my link was genuine enough
to be reported in the news there in Alaska thought it would be ok to inform the members here
sorry for my ignorance
maybe you should call the source of my op and tell them not to fear monger also
that way, i will not see Alaskans post non important news about Alaska.

Not really. Here is a cumulative graph of 4+ mag quakes in the last 365 days in Alaska. You can see the number is steady and the mags are pretty even.

I live in Alaska, everything is fine here, this thread is rubbish and sensationalist


A 5.9 anywhere is NOT rubbish and is NOT sensationalist and the OP has not sensationalised this in any way that I can see.

When you consider that this size of earthquake is the start of the band where they ring all round the world, and then consider that for a seismo to record this it has to move, and I mean physically move, then perhaps you begin to get the picture that this size of earthquake DOES move the ground all round the world and that is not something to take a cavalier attitude towards.

Further more this is the ONLY quake of that magnitude in the last 365 days so I am sorry but I think your reply could have been better worded. I don't care if you live there or not, you could take the time to explain about the levels of quakes that 'matter' in Alaska and not just 'rubbish' the thread.. That is a big quake and in some areas people would die from a quake that size.
