M8.2 Earthquake Hits Alaska, Tsunami Warning – Jul. 29, 2021

he 8.2 magnitude earthquake that struck off Alaska’s coast Wednesday night was the strongest one since 1964, an official told CNN.

The very strong quake was located about 56 miles (91 kilometers) east southeast of Perryville, Alaska, and happened around 10:15 p.m. Wednesday, the US Geological Survey said.

At 29 miles deep (46.7 km), the earthquake is considered shallow.
“This event was felt throughout the Alaska Peninsula and Kodiak,” according to the Alaska Earthquake Center.

There have been at least two strong aftershocks, including a preliminary magnitude 6.2 and magnitude 5.6, the USGS reported.

“We are now all clear and anxiously awaited for any announcement about a wave hitting (our) island,” Kodiak Mayor Pat Branson told CNN in an email. “The Emergency Operations Council was up and working monitoring and informing the public of any updates. Citizens did (evacuate).

“This was the strongest earthquake since 1964 and our 3rd evacuation in 18 months. But we are all good and grateful now.”

A tsunami warning issued for portions of the state shortly after the quake has been canceled for the coastal areas of South Alaska and the Alaska Peninsula and Aleutian Islands, according to the latest update from the National Tsunami Warning Center.
