Hope everyone is O.k over there. I think A local Tsunami warning has also been issued?

This was from the Daily Mail...

A huge earthquake hit just south west of Alaska this morning, threatening a devastating tsunami.

The 7.1 magnitude quake hit close to the Aleutian Islands, 1,031 miles away from Anchorage, sparking a tsunami warning in the region.

People in coastal areas in Alaska are being warned to move immediately inland to higher ground for fear the quake will cause huge waves to deluge towns by the sea.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration issued the warning, stating that residents should flee their homes immediately.

'Those feeling the earth shake, seeing unusual wave action, or the water level rising or receding may have only a few minutes before the tsunami arrival and should move immediately.

'Homes and small buildings are not designed to withstand tsunami impacts. Do not stay in these structures,' the warning read.

'Earthquakes of this magnitude are known to generate tsunamis,' the message added.

People in Pacific coastal regions outside California, Oregon, Washington, British Columbia, and Alaska have also been told to check updates for fear of widespread damage.

Last week, terrifying tremors were felt in New York, Washington D.C. and as far north as Toronto when America's East Coast was struck by the biggest earthquake in over a century.

Major buildings, including the Pentagon and the White House had to be evacuated and several top tourist attractions in Washington have been closed for safety reasons after the city was shaken by a 5.8-magnitude quake, which originated in Virginia.

Flights from JFK in New York and Reagan National Airport in Washington were also temporarily suspended while the airports checked for runway damage.

I think they should keep this thread open because it deals with this specific earthquake and not other earthquakes in general, like the other thread that has over 200 replies. Shakes ..

Stay safe all.

I'd bet almost anything that one of those will be deleted once it's properly reviewed by a seismologist - Why do they double up so often?! If they weren't at the exact same second maybe it'd be different, but they are identical, except for about 4km in depth. Usually it's just RSOE that doubles up, but meh, who knows! (it's kinda late here in Australia too ;p)

That is a false pick by a computer if you are referring to the 4.7 that was cancelled.

Erroneous identification of the Mag 7.1 now Mag 6.8

This quake was added 3 times and deleted twice. I have the deletions in my database as I record them all.

Unfortunately some sites do not re-read the data to find out what is going on and effective double post the data.

Ack! Your map is all crazy, too tired to make sense of it.....

However, I am in Salt Lake City, have been awake since 8pm last night, it's 6:30am, I have not felt any EQ, though I'm not sure where the Utah quake you mentioned took place.

Alaska has 1.2 inhabitants per square mile (0.46 /km2). I am sure all 10 of them felt this within the affected area.

I bet there will be a Disaster Relief Request from the Governer for that too
