Well, were awake now. Largest tremor we've felt here in a long time. If you have friends in S.E. Alaska they probably just felt the quake that woke my family up with shaking and things falling off the shelves.

Since the quake was in Alaska would the tsunami be headed towards Russia?

I took time to immediately call friends who live on the water. At times like this I’m glad our home is not on the water.

Our youngest son, 18, made a last minute decision not to visit friends in Sitka via ferry boat on the 1st January. I didn't feel right about the trip for other reasons, but am especially glad he decided not to go, cancelling his ticket for a refund.

Maybe it goes in all directions, radiating from the center. Just a guess.

Thanks to you, and the other posters.

My wife and I were sound asleep when the house started shaking, that quake in November we all felt but it lasted no where near as long or felt as strong to us as this one did.

Our girls have a friend over tonight whose father is one of the commanding officers U.S.C.G base Ketchikan. I’m thinking they’ve got all hands “on deck”.

Sheesh, I’ve got an excuse for being up now, but what are you all doing up so late?

I’m Anchorage, more than 600 miles north, and I believe Eye of Unk is north of me.....not where tsunamis can get to us.

But the tsunami warning woke me up at my computer.

Thanks for inquiring.

This is just normal wakeup time for me.

As I have posted before, all can sign up for automatic earthquake notification from the USGS:
https://sslearthquake.usgs.gov/ens/

I get one on an average of one per week.

Any feedback from your friends on the water?

Be safe.

Tsunami warnings have broken into the tv twice now....Cape Suckling south to Vancouver Island.

Nothing, but in the morning will be talking with a sporting goods store manager in Craig who told me today (yesterday now) they have a case or two of 5.56 ammo, for a decent price.

It will interesting to hear how their night finished out, as close as we are in Ktn, they are practically on top of that one.

71 miles (113 km) WSW of Craig.....pretty close for a 7+.

Hope they are all safe...high and dry.

Just broke in again....tsunami warning continues. Now north to Cape Fairweather...canceled further north.

Craig at 1:15a.....whatever was coming should have made itself known by now.

Port Alexander reports a 6 inch wave. The wave has passed Sika and it was less than inch.

I woke uo just a little while ago just before 2am my time 11 miles north of Wasilla, hey guys and gals, thank you very much for thinking about me!

Really, the last month or so I have felt like one of those people with a billboard saying the end is near and everyone is just driving by staring.

Nope, didn’t feel a thing here. Just checked for any alerts, nada. I’m about 500 ft. above sea level way past the Turnagin Arm. My property actually sits on a smaller active fault line, but its mostly rock under me.

Our weather has been unusually warm, up to 40F during the day, what snow we did get is all just sun polished ice now, my recently bough snowmachine is forlornly parked under a tarp, I guess I need to switch to the motorcycles soon.

I think we will see another major quake off the vancouver area, that fault is way past its due date, Seattle of course is in the crosshairs, people THERE I worry for.

As long as you aren’t near the coast, tsunamis have minimal effect on ships and boats. Just a slow gentle heave. On land, the persistent “heave” or swell causes havoc. If you are near the coast and your boat is carried inland, things can get real bad.
