Last month South Central Alaska experienced an earthquake that measured 6.2 on the rector scale. Although there wasn’t any significant damage because of the quake, the state of Alaska is promoting a program that it says will keep residents safe during an earthquake.

A sizable earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 6.1 shook buildings in Anchorage Thursday morning. The quake was centered about 80-miles northwest of Anchorage at a depth of 61-miles. It struck at 9:51 Thursday morning. The location of the quake was inland so there are no watches, warnings or advisories for a tsunami. So far there are no reports of significant damage.

An earthquake with a magnitude of 7.0 was recorded Sunday night off the coast of Northern California. The earthquake did NOT create a destructive tsunami. The National Tsunami Warning Center in Palmer confirms the quake was recorded at 9:18 Sunday night and was located about 40-miles west of Eureka, California.

An earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 7.0 struck the Aleutian Islands this morning. The earthquake occurred at 8:25 this morning and was centered about 55-miles southeast of Adak.
