Fortunate that it’s not in a populated area. It seems a subduction zone quake and hopefully it won’t trigger a bigger one like the Boxing Day Earth Quake and Tsunami was preceded by another large quake.

Queen Charlotte Islands. Not a lot of people there, luckily. At first I was thinking it was Vancouver Island, which did have a tsunami at one time.

They have issued a tsunami warning since this isn’t a deep quake.

It’s not a subduction zone - it’s a strike-slip (transform) fault like the San Andreas, connecting the Cascadia subduction zone and the subduction in Alaska

Good, no tsunami alert after all.

I didn’t know there was an 8.1 earthquake in the same region in 1949!! Wow. Monster quake.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning center in Hawaii and the Alaska and West Coast Tsunami Warning Center are two different entities. There is in fact a tsunami warning for Alaska, Canada, and the West coast, but not one for Hawaii or anywhere else in the Pacific.

Sitka was one of the locations that is supposed to be impacted. There was a lot of screw ups with the Tsunami warning.

They aren’t conflicting forecasts. The two centers have different assigned forecast areas.

Seems there was a small tsunami recorded...

The ways and whims of the mods are mysterious and not to be questioned. On the other hand they may just be busy moderating Mormon/anti-Mormon/anti-Romney threads elsewhere.

So! The East and West coasts are being attacked currently. Too much of a coincidence, full moon or not.

Whoa!

Shake, rattle, and roll!

I snoozed right through it, but then it’s probably a good 600 miles from me...
