A major earthquake struck 170 miles off Alaska early Tuesday, but despite initial concerns, the authorities lifted all tsunami warnings, watches and advisories within four hours. I cant imagine what a scare it would be to live on the coast with a tsunami coming.. Glad things are better there now.. some reported quake to be around 7.6 .. another good sized one ..

@kayshope From the picture it does not look like fun to clean up the mess. I am glad it was not a tsunami.

This is alarm by nature to Human being, that we should stop wrong actions against nature else nature will give strong punishment to human being.

At least, Alaska is lightly populated. Can you imagined hitting the CA coast?

That must be a strong one. I have read this year, there will be a lot of earth movements and volcano eruptions especially in those countries near the ring of fire.
