The 8.2-magnitude earthquake occurred Wednesday night local time in Perryville, 800 miles southwest of Anchorage.

Strong, according to the United States Geological Survey (USGS), there was an 8.2-magnitude earthquake off the southern coast of Alaska Wednesday night local time. A tsunami tax was imposed due to the earthquake.

The epicenter was 91 miles southeast of Perryville, and its nest was at a depth of 32 miles. Perryville is located about half a mile southwest of Anchorage, Alaska’s largest city.

The competent authorities warned that “according to all available data, the earthquake may lead to tidal waves that could be destructive in coastal areas far from the epicenter.” Accordingly, a tsunami was also launched in Hawaii.

In October 2020, after a 7.5-magnitude earthquake in Alaska, a tsunami warning was issued as well, and no large-scale tsunami was observed at that time

The earthquake struck a sparsely populated area, causing no casualties and no major damage.

Alaska is located on the Pacific Ring of Fire, which extends from the Gulf of Alaska to the Russian Kamchatka Peninsula. Earthquakes are common in the area.

On March 27, 1964, a 9.2-minute earthquake struck the city of Anchorage for several minutes. It was the most powerful earthquake ever recorded in the United States. A devastating tsunami swept the West Coast of the United States, killing more than 250 people.

The hundred-year-old clock stopped at the time of the disaster and, although cleaned, was not restarted. So far.

Ice blocks can also move, although not as fast as the eye can see. A snow-covered part of Alaska can slowly disprove this.
