It was just a modest little shaker but it scared the cats and enthralled us for a couple of minutes.

From the West Coast and Alaska Tsunami WarningCenterAt 9:10 AM Alaskan Standard Time on January 24, an earthquake with preliminary magnitude 5.7 occurred 50 miles/80 Km west of Homer, Alaska.

5.7 Quake rattles Southcentral


Of course, the next thing I did was check on our local volcanos on the Alaska Volcano Observatory website. Aside from registering the earthquake itself, the seismic monitors on the near-by peaks showed normal background activity.

Except i noticed that Mt. Redoubt has been restless recently--which is good to know. We will be keeping an eye on that.
