Hey all,
I just saw on the USGS web site:

http://earthquake.usgs.gov/eqcenter/recenteqsww/Quakes/quakes_all.php

There have been, so far today, 83 earthquakes in the Aleutian Islands, 22 of which were over magnitude 4.0.

Haven't heard anything or seen anything on the news. Anyone know anything about this?

ANCFlyer, can you fill me in??

My glass is neither 1/2 empty nor 1/2 full, rather, the glass itself is twice as big as it should be.

I am probably the closest A.netter to these quakes and didnt feel them, but did hear about it on the local news. These sort of things happen all the time in the Aleutian Islands, but they are very sparsely populated, and spread out so there is little impact in population centers, and only then due to the Tsunami they could possibly generate. Right now there is still at least two active volcanos erupting periodically. Mt Augustine has been rumbling, and throwing out ash once a week or so since January.

The star is where I live, and youll notice the Aleutians run a long way out there. From the end of the peninsula to the end of the chain is about 1000miles.

Just another lazy day in the Last Frontier. That happens all the time, although I will admit that 83 in a day might raise a few eyebrows.

Pretty much a normal day for the chain. you have one and then the rest of them occur as a result...the earth settling.

you have a major fault zone running the length of those islands, which is also responsible for all the volcanos that formed all of those islands.

Just for reference, that is Kiska Island, during WWII that was a Japanese held island. The entire north end of that island is one volcano.

And on the right lower corner is Amchitka Island, We bombed the japs on Kiska from there. And after the war the US did underground bomb tests in the late 60's early 1970's. The largest US atomic bomb ever tested was blown under that island in the 1970's.

It's unrelated to the earthquakes but you want to see the earth move, watch this film of the largest Amchitka blast.

Edit:Found the videos I was looking for. First one is a bit dark, second one was the big one. LIke I said, if you want to see the earth move.....make you wonder what all these earthquakes are doing for the radiation under that island now.

Sorry, was out camping all week . . .

BushPilot is closer, rather was closer, and no way we'd have felt those in ANC . . . Rat Islands over a thousand miles from here . . . give or take a glacier or two.


As L-188 says, pretty much a normal day for the Aleutians. Hell, almost normal for the rest of Alaska . . . we have quakes all the time . . . some small, some larger - some kick ass, although those are few and far between.

Welcome to Alaska . . .  bigthumbsup

My condolences on the 12 year old daughter. My 6 year old can already give me headaches and people have told me that it doesnt get easier with age.

Hope you had a good vacation.
