Earthquakes in Alaska

More earthquakes occur in Alaska than anywhere else in the United States. Alaska can have up to 24,000 earthquakes every year, according to the U.S. Seismology Department. Alaska is in the place where two major tectonic plates, continental and oceanic, bump into one another. It is the North Pacific Plate and the North American Plate that causes activity. Most of the activity happens in Cook Inlet, or north of Denali in the central region. The 1964 Alaskan earthquake, also known as the Great Alaskan Earthquake and Good Friday Earthquake, was a megathrust earthquake that began at 5:36 P.M. AST on Good Friday, March 27. Across south-central Alaska, ground fissures, collapsing structures, and tsunamis caused about 139 deaths. Lasting four minutes and 38 seconds, it was the most powerful recorded earthquake in U.S. and North American history. It had a moment magnitude of 9.2, making it the second strongest earthquake in recorded history.. Earthquakes in Alaska today. All information you need to know about Alaska.

earthquake

A magnitude 5.5 earthquake shook Abepura, Indonesia at 23:20 UTC. The tremor reached 1078 km to Papua New Guinea, which has experienced several tremors already.

Both Indonesia and Papua New Guinea are on “Green Alert,” this means people are unlikely to have been injured and there was little to no damage. This area is prone to earthquakes because they are on the boundary of the Australia-Pacific plate, which experiences a great deal of seismic activity. However, the many tremors that have impacted Indonesia and Papua New Guinea have caused landslides and other secondary hazards. This can cause not only loss of lives but a loss in the economy of these countries.

Due to the certainty of seismic activity, both countries must ensure the structure of their buildings by reinforcements that can resist the shaking from earthquakes. The reinforced buildings are able to withstand earthquakes, contribute to public safety, and the economy.

Magnitude 6.6 earthquake hits eastern Indonesia; 39 injured

 
The quake, which struck at 00:53 a.m. Friday local time, was centered 28 kilometers north of Sorong, a town in Indonesia’s West Papua province.

A 6.6-magnitude quake hit in waters off Indonesia’s easternmost province early Friday, injuring dozens of people, damaging buildings and sending panicked residents fleeing from homes, hotels and even a hospital.

The quake, which struck at 00:53 a.m. Friday (1553 GMT Thursday), was centered 28 kilometers (17 miles) north of Sorong, a town in Indonesia’s West Papua province, the U.S. Geological Survey said on its Web site. It occurred at a depth of 24 kilometers (15 miles).

Hundreds of people fled their homes in panic in Sorong and at least 39 people were hurt, mostly with broken bones, said Petrus Korisano from the local disaster mitigation agency in Sorong. Nearly 260 houses and buildings were damaged.

Hundreds of people were evacuated to temporary shelters as authorities surveyed the damage, Korisano told The Associated Press.

The 5.1 magnitude quake was 167 km deep, centred 25 km south-east of Tokoroa, GNS said.

It struck at about 6.48am and has been felt in Hawke’s Bay, Manawatu-Wanganui, Wellington and in the top of the South Island.

GNS seismologist John Ristau said the depth of the quake was probably the reason it was felt so widely.

5.6 quake near Aden; UAE not impacted

Struck at 8.03am on Tuesday

A 5.6-magintude earthquake struck the Gulf of Aden on Tuesday morning, with authorities confirming the UAE was not impacted by any seismic activity.

The incident occurred at 8.03am UAE time, with the head of the country’s seismology centre telling ‘Emirates24|7’, the epicentre of the tremblor was 10 kilometres deep in the Gulf of Aden, the body of water between Yemen and Somalia.

The United States Geological Survey (USGS) posted the epicentre was near Qalansiyah, Socotra Island, Yemen.

“The 5.6-magnitude tremblor is what we call a moderate earthquake, which are regular occurrences in the Gulf of Aden,” said Khamis Al Shamsi from the National Centre for Meteorology and Seismology (NCMS).
