Here is the current accurate information for the earthquake that hit Anchorage this morning, I live about 365 miles north of the epicenter and some people in Fairbanks and surrounding areas felt the initial earthquake, however I did not.

And the damned code button finally works right! A friend from University of South Florida figured it out and worked magic. Now I owe him 3 pool lessons, 🤓

Looking at the list of recent quakes on that site, if the people around Anchorage put some sugared cream out they could do a great business in ice cream. Aftershocks by the dozens.

Well over 100 aftershocks in Anchorage since the quake a couple of days ago.

Quakes of up to 7.5 in and southeast of Loyalty.Islands in the southern Pacific. Plenty of aftershocks.
These and the Alaska quakes are part of the "Ring of Fire " surrounding the Pacific Ocean.

Anak Krakatoa, the baby volcano growing out of the remains of the Krakatoa volcano between Java and Sumatra suffered a landslide last night. This triggertred a tsunami. Reports are pending.

If I recall the stories correctly, this one's daddy also was a holy terror.

Yes. Mt. Krakatoa's 1883 massive eruption was heard as far away as Australia, created a 100-foot-high tsunami that killed at least 36,000 (at a time when that region was not as densely-populated as it is now) and darkened skies over Europe and North America for months. The noise of the explosive eruption is considered the loudest heard in historical times.
Anak Krakatau translates to 'child of Krakatoa,' and this young volcano formed on the shattered slope of Krakatoa.

And now, Mt Etna, on Sicily, decided she was very bored. I guess that one got jealous for attention. This is her biggest to-do in quite a while.

Hearing Mt Krakatoa's 1883 eruption as far away as Australia - that is quite impressive: that's more than the distance from Houston, TX to Chicago, IL. Yikes...

7.1 magnitude quake on Mindanao, Philippines last night. Aftershocks, of course. I have a lot of friends from pool in the Philippines, I hope they and their families are not affected.

Anak Krakatoa has managed to lose one side to a massive landslide, which contributed too the tsunami between Sumatra and Java. So far, the death toll is above 400. I would not advise tourist visits any time soon. Quakes are still on going, many in the 5.0 range

Ecuador had a bit of a shaker.... 7.5 on Richter scale. No reports of casualties or damage, yet. It was off in the Andes highlands from news I'm getting. Peru must have set that up a couple of days ago with a 5.5 wiggle off in the mountains.

Earthquake---6.4 or 6.6, depending on who is reporting it, Mojave desert. Los Angeles felt it as a roll. Centered east of LA.

My sister and I were sitting at the dining table when everything started to gently rock back and forth. Wasn't any doubt what it was, although the long roller didn't knock anything down.
Although I bet that if we were near the epicenter, it wouldn't have felt so 'gentle.' :?

I felt a roll, wondered if I was dizzy for a second, then wondered if it could possibly be a small quake... switched over to twitter and yup, earthquake. And I'm over 450 miles away from the epicenter!

(okay maybe 300miles as the crow flies, but there's mountains and stuff in the way)
