Some Alaska citizens flee strong quake over tsunami fears

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — A effective earthquake sent some seaside Alaska citizens running for greater ground in fear they’d be swamped with a tsunami, a tragedy that never materialized following the trembling that did nothing more than knock pictures off walls. The magnitude-6.7 quake struck at 11 p.m. Thursday and it was centered within the sea about 35 miles underneath the seabed and a few 400 miles southwest of Anchorage, the U.S. Geological Survey stated. Pedersen, an assemblyman for that Lake and Peninsula Borough, stated most of the 96 people residing in the adjacent village of Chignik also gone to live in greater ground. The temblor produced a buzz on Kodiak Island, probably the most populated place to have the quake.
