N. Pacific Tsunami watch

Post by MPMalloy » Mon Jul 17, 2017 8:30 pm

CBC News is reporting a 7.7 magnitude earthquake in the North Pacific. CBC went on to say that there could be a Tsunami off the coast of Eastern Russia. They gave the name of a town, but I didn't understand it.

The story is developing.

Magnitude 7.8 quake between Russia and Alaska to cause tsunami waves: US Pacific Tsunami Warning Center

http://www.cnbc.com/2017/07/17/quake-be ... s-say.html

The U.S. Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said Monday evening that a magnitude 7.8 earthquake had occurred off the coast of Russia's Kamchatka Peninsula.

"Based on preliminary earthquake parameters... hazardous tsunami waves are possible for coasts located within 300 km (186 miles) of the earthquake epicenter," the center wrote in an official message.

Tsunami waves, however, were unlikely to reach Kamchatka's eastern coast, some 500 km (310 miles) away.

The quake was followed by several aftershocks, including a couple above magnitude 5.0.

The earthquake was originally reported as a 7.4 magnitude, but it was subsequently upgraded to 7.8.

On Twitter, the center confirmed that it was not expecting tsunami conditions to impact North American coasts.
