Default 7.5 quake jolts Alaska, triggers tsunami warning

7.5 quake jolts Alaska, triggers tsunami warning - latimes.com

JUNEAU, Alaska—
A tsunami warning is in effect for parts of southern Alaska and coastal Canada after a strong earthquake shook the region at midnight Friday.

The warning area includes coastal areas from about 75 miles southeast of Cordova, Alaska, to the north tip of Vancouver Island, Canada, the Alaska Tsunami Warning Center said. The warning area extends for about 475 miles.

I post this because I live at the northern edge of the tsunami waring area. The warning has been cancelled, and I didn't even feel a tremor here.

I wouldn't want any of my friends to worry! So you can both relax.

I have USGS earthquake alerts by email and text message, because we live in an area that is particularly susceptible to tsunamis. The first thing I did when I woke up this morning is check out tsunami.gov

I am sorry OC, I just posted the same story in my Natural Events thread from the Washington Post.

I am glad little damage and no harm came to you or other people.

I have this one at my thread, Natural Events, which is in the Climate Change & The Environment Topic Area.

It covers a lot more than the title speaks of as it is world wide.. Then to I live in the middle of America.

Heard it on the radio last night. Glad you're OK.

No problemo! I only posted this because it was getting close to my bedtime, and I knew that folks might see it during the hours that I'm not around.
