Alaska earthquake: Alarming triple quake cluster rocks US state as tsunami fears soar

All three quakes were registered only minutes apart from each other.

The first tremor, a magnitude 1 earthquake, hit only 18 kilometers east-southeast of Denali National Park.

The second quake, a more powerful magnitude 5.2 was pinpointed 98 kilometers northeast of Atka.

This was then followed by a magnitude 5.4 earthquake, located 124 kilometers between north and northeast of Atka.

An hour after the first earthquake was registered, reports emerged of a magnitude 1.8 earthquake hitting just 13 kilometers north of Nanwalek.

Earlier this month, a massive 7.4 magnitude earthquake triggered a tsunami warning for South Alaska and the Alaskan Penninsula.

The powerful quake struck about 55 miles southeast of Sand Point.

Following the earthquake, a tsunami warning was issued for South Alaska and the Alaska Peninsula.

Residents of the coastal area have been asked to keep calm and quickly move to higher ground away from the coast.

There have since been tsunami warnings for parts of southern Alaska, including Kodiak Island.

A local man from Cold Bay described the tremor as lasting under 30 seconds.

He said: “It was a pretty good ride — I couldn’t tell you for how long — maybe 15-30 seconds.

He said: “You kind of always wait for it to build more, but it just lasted and trailed off.”

“We haven’t been able to identify any structural damage at this point, and we don’t believe there is any.”

The warning issued by the National Weather Service read: “Tsunami warnings mean that a tsunami with significant inundation is possible or is already occurring.

“Tsunamis are a series of waves dangerous many hours after initial arrival time.

“The first wave may not be the largest.”
