    M8.2 earthquake off of Alaska

    USGS
    A magnitude 8.2 earthquake struck 50 miles south of the Alaska Peninsula on July 28, 2021 at 10:15 pm local time (July 29, 2021 06:15 UTC). Seismic instruments indicate the earthquake originated at a depth of 20 miles (32.2 kilometers).

    Perceived shaking for the quake was weak to light in Anchorage.
    CBS News
    A powerful earthquake which struck just off Alaska's southern coast caused prolonged shaking and prompted tsunami warnings that sent people scrambling for shelters.


    Residents reported only minor damage, but officials said that could change after sunrise and people get a better look.

    The National Tsunami Warning Center canceled the warnings early Thursday when the biggest wave, of just over a half foot, was recorded in Old Harbor. A tsunami warning that had also been issued for Hawaii was also canceled, and officials said there was no threat to Guam, American Samoa or the Commonwealth of Northern Mariana Islands.

    I was sitting outside when it occurred but it was ~520 miles away, so I didn't feel a thing.
