Believe it or not, the first news report that shows up on a google search is from Al Jazeera.

The quake was felt in SE Alaska and Port Alexander had a 6 inch wave.

Just FYI:

The first one or more Google results are often pay-for-placement results.

Google is increasingly unreliable.

Being that Alaska overlayed across the continental states would reach from AZ to Maine not everyone will feel an earthquake in Alaska. We get quakes almost every five minutes up here in the 2.5 category, of which some people back east feel they must change their underwear after one passes.

I have been in a 6.5 and no biggee, hardly anything even moved in the house, maybe its the extra thick walls full of insulation or its the ground but I know for a fact quakes happen all the time right under me as I live right on a fault line that runs just north of Wasilla to Willow. But they heave to be at least 5.0 before I notice them, might just be a geography, its mostly rock under me.

I chose my property well, at least I’m not on an alluvial silt plain, thats the bad place to live, ground turns into oatmeal.

Thanks for the info.

At 7.7 mag & 6 miles underground, it sounded a bit worrisome.

Glad you’re ok.

I just never thought it would come to where news items would be bought & paid for by Al-Jazeera no less. With them giving AlGore those mega-millions, now the libs at Google, makes we wonder what's going on.

Google ranking is also based on sites other people are searching and/or visiting, so the Current TV deal may be a factor.

Been listening to FOX on and off, mostly off tonight and haven't heard mention of it.
Would think a mag 7 or so would be worth a mention, unless I missed it.

It hasn't been in the MSM much, even before the amount of damage was known - luckly very little.

Not sure why... It's listed as a 7.5 and very shallow!

I recall a similar magnitude event, just South of this quake, IIRC, not too many moons ago. Likewise, little damage other than fraying the nerves of the locals.

Yes, wasn’t much of a tsunami at all. Strange area that is... I wouldn’t want to see a shallow M7.5+ in the GOM.

More importantly that marks the second large quake in the past six months along that same suducting area. An area dangerously close to the famed Juan De Fuca. Does that stress load and or unglue parts of that volatile subduction zone?

It for sure added stress....

Checking through different recordings of the quake...I came across Mt. Redoubt’s rso recorder.

Not a single hint of that big quake....kinda odd. Wonder what they have it set on...lol

Saw some interesing waves being generated on other recorders. It has me believing most of the movement occured with the Pacific plate, and slipping instead of subducting?

From the link you posted:

October 4, 2011: The signals from station RSO is currently troubled with radio interference from an unknown source. Station RSO is located 3 km (2 miles) south of the Redoubt summit and can be very sensitive to activity at the summit. A map showing the location of RSO and other Redoubt seismic stations is available at http://www.avo.alaska.edu/image.php?id=16308.

Ha! Typical government workers, lol... Takes 'em forever to do something. Reminds me of the "Daily Update" on the JPL Mars Curiosity page: "October 10, 2012 - Work Resumes with First Scooped Sample."

Haha...

I was a second away from posting that article....lol

What is interesting is the this little line...

“Finally, he noticed that when the ions reach the air, the positive and negative charges neutralize. This produces a burst of infrared radiation that can fool weather satellites into thinking the ground near the fault is warming up, even when ground-based weather stations say it isn't. This is easily visible by GOES weather satellites, he says.”

Since a lot of the AGW models are based on Satellite derived readings...how much does this play into their variability?

However I am sure you like that article! On a side note I wonder if this electric charging might also explain the various reports of booming like what was heard last week in Guthrie Texas?

This produces a burst of infrared radiation that can fool weather satellites into thinking the ground near the fault is warming up, even when ground-based weather stations say it isn't.

I would be willing to bet not all of the burst is in just the infrared spectrum.
The reports of earthquake lights, ball lightening type phenomena, etc that you hear about every now and then.
Plus, some animals, can see nearly into the infrared spectrum, more so than we can.
