M7.8 Earthquake Produces Small Tsunami in Alaska – Sirens Blaring, People Fleeing Towns, Shaking Felt 500 Miles Away

A powerful earthquake off Alaska’s southern coast jolted sparsely populated coastal communities late Tuesday…

And some residents briefly fled to higher ground over fears of a tsunami.

There were no immediate reports of damage in the Alaska Peninsula and the tsunami warning was canceled after the magnitude 7.8 quake offshore produced a wave of a less than a foot (30 centimeters).

According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the earthquake struck Tuesday at 10:12 p.m. local time and was centered in waters 65 miles (105 kilometers) south-southeast of the tiny community of Perryville, at a depth of 17 miles (28 km).

Because of the temblor’s location, some nearby Alaska Peninsula communities did not experience shaking that would normally be associated with the quake’s magnitude, said Michael West, Alaska state seismologist.

Residents in some small towns within a hundred miles (160 kilometers) of the quake reported very strong shaking and some shaking was felt more than more than 500 miles (805 kilometers) away in the Anchorage area.

The tsunami warning prompted coastal residents to evacuate to higher ground, with social media posts showing long lines of people fleeing towns like Homer and Kodiak as tsunami sirens wailed in the background.

On Kodiak Island about 200 miles (320 kilometers) northeast of where the earthquake was centered, the local high school and the Catholic church opened their doors for evacuees and the school parking lot was declared a safe zone, with some people staying in their cars with pets until it was safe to go home.

No reports of any damage,” said Kodiak police Sgt. Mike Sorter. “No injuries were reported. Everything is nominal.

Such tsunami warnings are commonplace in Alaska coastal communities, similar to tornado warnings elsewhere in the U.S. that prompt people to take shelter.

Officials at the National Tsunami Warning Center in Palmer, Alaska, began calling off the tsunami advisories and warnings after a wave of less than 1 foot (30 centimeters) was recorded in the community of Sand Point.

I might have expected a little bit more water, but I’m happy that there wasn’t,” said David Hale, the senior duty scientist at the tsunami center.

Now, watch the waves from the M7.8 Alaska earthquake roll across seismic stations in North America!

Tuesday’s quake was more powerful than the magnitude 7.1 earthquake that caused damage in the Anchorage area in November 2018, although this earthquake released about 15 times as much energy as that earthquake.

More than a dozen aftershocks of magnitude 4.0 or higher were reported immediately after the earthquake.

We got people here who are going be working all night,” West said. ”These aftershocks will go and go and go and go.

The earthquake happened in the so-called Alaska-Aleutian Trench, where a magnitude 9.2 quake in 1964 was centered.

That remains the second most powerful earthquake ever recorded globally. The temblor and ensuing tsunami caused widespread damage and killed 131 people, some as far away as Oregon and California.

Alaska is the most actively seismic U.S. state. Nearly 25,000 earthquakes have been recorded in Alaska since Jan. 1, according to the center. And it’s in the Ring of Fire!

  1. I have been to Perryville. It’s worth while to study it’s history and how it’s related to the volcanoes in the region. (Land of Ten Thousand Smokes).There is a very dangerous volcano a few miles from Perryville that is monitored continually. Visual observations are made daily. About 20 years ago a young school teaching was jogging on the main road. A pack of wolves attacked and eat her.

  3. Special world war 3 news!!!

    Two fighter jets approach an Iranian Mahan Airline plane over Syria

    Iran’s state TV reported that a Mahan Airline passenger plane heading to Lebanon was “threatened” over Syria by two jet fighters and claimed some of the passengers were injured due to the pilot’s decision to drop altitude. The plane safely landed in Beirut Airport later.

    The spokesman for the Islamic Republic of Iran’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs has blamed the United States for the incident and warned that if anything happens to the plane on its way back it will be blamed on the U.S.

    The pilot has also claimed that the fighter jets that approached the plane were American.

    Previously some Iranian news sources had announced that they were Israeli fighter jets, but the Israeli army denied these speculations and said the fighter jets were not from Israel.

    Tasnim News Agency, close to the Islamic Revolutionary Guard (IRGC) announced that there were no political or military figures aboard the Mahan plane traveling to Beirut.

    Mahan Airlines has been under U.S sanctions since 2011 for transporting IRGC weapons and forces to different areas in the region including Syria. Several European countries have also banned Mahan Airlines from their airspace.

    US tops 1,000 coronavirus deaths 4 days in a row as experts urge the country to shut down
    (CNN)Coronavirus deaths in the US topped 1,000 four days in a row last week amid ongoing debates on the return of school and mask mandates.

    The country recorded 900 new virus-related deaths Saturday, down from the 1,130 reported Friday. Since the beginning of the pandemic, at least 146,460 Americans have died from the virus, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.
    And models project that there will be up to 175,000 deaths linked to the virus by August 15, according to an ensemble forecast published by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation projects there will be around 165,000 US deaths by that time.
    These are some of the 91,000 people who've died since the US reopened
    These are some of the 91,000 people who’ve died since the US reopened
    The grim patterns come as several states have reported record-breaking numbers of new cases and deaths in the past weeks. Some local leaders, including Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner and Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, have mentioned the possibility of a second stay-at-home order as officials warn of strained testing labs and overwhelmed hospitals.
    And on Thursday, more than 150 prominent medical experts, scientists, teachers, nurses and other experts signed a letter urging leaders to shut the country down and start over to contain the rampant spread of the virus.
    “Right now, we are on a path to lose more than 200,000 American lives by November 1st. Yet, in many states people can drink in bars, get a haircut, eat inside a restaurant, get a tattoo, get a massage, and do myriad other normal, pleasant, but non-essential activities,” the letter read, which was sent to the Trump administration, members of Congress and state governors. I say wih riots and Marial Law in progress we will have more deaths up to 500,00

    Iran moves fake aircraft carrier to Strait of Hormuz

    Satellite images show that the Islamic Republic of Iran’s military forces have moved a mock aircraft carrier toward the Strait of Hormuz.

    The images from Maxar Technology company show the fake vessel, modeled after Nimitz class carriers, being tugged from Bandar Abbas port to the Strait of Hormuz.

    This could be preparation for a military drill and target practice.

    Islamic Republic officials have not offered an explanation for this move.

    The dummy US Navy aircraft carrier was built in 2013-14 and was destroyed in the Winter of 2015 in a military drill. According to the IRGC, the vessel was hit by 4 missiles, 400 rockets, and a fast explosive boat.

    The vessel was recently repaired and seems to be ready for another military drill.

    The vessel carries 16 mock fighter jets on its deck and is 200 meters long and 50 meters wide, compared to the Nimitz class carrier which is 300 meters long and 75 meters wide.

    Previously, the dummy carrier was kept close to where 100 IRGC speed boats were stationed.

  13. World WAR 3 NEWS :
    Google: Hackers backed by China and Iran targeted Trump, Biden campaigns

    Google said state-based hackers have targeted the campaigns of both President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden, although it saw no evidence that the phishing attempts were successful.

    The company confirmed the findings after the director of its Threat Analysis Group, Shane Huntley, disclosed the attempts Thursday on Twitter.

    Huntley said a Chinese group known as Hurricane Panda targeted Trump campaign staffers while an Iranian outfit known as Charming Kitten had attempted to breach accounts of Biden campaign workers. Such phishing attempts typically involve forged emails with links designed to harvest passwords or infect devices with malware.

    The effort targeted personal email accounts of staffers in both campaigns, according to the company statement. A Google spokesman added that “the timeline is recent and that a couple of people were targeted on both campaigns.” He would not say how many.

    Google said it sent targeted users “our standard government-backed attack warning” and referred the incidents to federal law enforcement.
    Death to Terrorist Regime of IRAN and all his armies.
