Earthquake

Just heard there was an 8.0 earthquake up there. Not sure where it was centered. Checking on all our Alaska friends. Does anyone have any information? Hopefully everyone is ok.

It was out in Amchitka, there is an app that warns you but I don't remember where I got it from. I never deleted it after moving.

And I look at this site . . . if you check it out, it shows that Alaska is pretty much shaking on a regular & frequent basis:

I guess it all depends on where we live, where it was centered and how deep . . .most of the time, we don't feel them where I live unless they are pretty close. Thanks for thinking of us debbiejo! :)

When you get a breaking news headline that says there was an 8.0 earthquake in AK and no other information, it is scary. The girl that sits next to me at work has a sister that lives in Anchorage, so we wanted to find out anything we could. Hopefully they will cancel the tsunami warnings.

The earthquake was closer to Russia than to the mainland.
