Loma Prieta in 1989 was either 6.9 or 7.1 depending on measurement methodolgy, Northridge in 1994 was 6.7.

Richter scale is logarithmic, as you may know.

Yep, we just experienced it firsthand.

My family and I were watching an old movie, all the furniture started moving. Called son who lives down the road, he felt it while outside.

Approximately 150-160 mile from where we live here in Ketchikan.

First earthquake we have felt in a long time.

Curious where you can find accurate info regarding your susceptibility to flooding. Is there a good site that shows this type of information? I recall looking after the Japan tsunami and not being able to find good info.

Already warning friends in harbor and along waterfront. Our home is about 100’ above sea level.

I would imagine the islands between us and the outside of the Queen Charlotte’s would “dampen” effect of large tsunami...

We shall see....

Did the bouys that are blinking yellow actually pickup the earthquake? Looking at the charts there is a “bobble” about the time of the earthquake.
