Tsunami warning canceled for Alaska coastal areas

Posted: June 23, 2011 - 8:16pm  |  Updated: December 13, 2011 - 12:05pm

ANCHORAGE (AP) - The Alaska Earthquake Information Center says a major earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 7.2 has been recorded in the Pacific Ocean off Alaska's remote Aleutian Islands.

The center says the Thursday evening quake was felt through the central Aleutians and as far east as Dutch Harbor and Unalaska. There are no immediate reports of damage.

The West Coast and Alaska Tsunami Warning Center posted a tsunami warning for certain coastal areas of Alaska, but canceled the warning about an hour after the quake. The warning covered an area from 80 miles northeast of Dutch Harbor to about 125 miles west of Adak.

In Dutch Harbor, longshoreman Jim Paulin said warning sirens caused hundreds of people to begin climbing up a nearby hill.

What The ?

Fri. 6/25/11
Sounds like a FUBAR to me ?

Doesn't do much for building confidence in the Warning System?

But ya did notice that People did Pay Attention & seek Higher Ground.

Remember Japan May 2011.
