About That "Earthquake in the Alaskan Islands"

"The quake struck 100 km (60 miles) southwest of Nikolski, the USGS said, but there were no immediate reports of casualties or damage."

It was a 6.9-magnitude 'quake, and we hadn't even heard about it until e-mails started arriving, asking if we're okay.

The reason no reports were received is because it's uninhabited, and some 750 or 800 miles southwest of here. The folks in Dutch Harbor/Unalaska/Cold Bay probably got a good shaking, and I pray they're all okay.

It's the tree falling in the forest analogy... Hope they're okay down there!

The local media outlets are ignoring it, so there must not be anything to report, right? But since this is the media we're discussing, we may never know.

Rev. Paul,
Good to see you and yours are okay. Hopefully no damage to your home.
Foundation, or internal items.

Sandy, it was 800 miles from here, in the Aleutians. No one in this part of the state even knew it happened, so we're all fine.
Thank you for the concern, though. :)
