This should be a real-time alert. Fortunately for our Y-K-N region, we are behind the Aleutians “breakwater”. But the event alert can mean genuine disaster in other parts of Alaska. [We did get an effect from the Boxing Day earthquake of 2005, but no tsunami.] The latest event is marked by the red plus.
