Where is… Bethel’s tsunami

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.

Please Note:
This event map page is updated when a Tsunami message is issued. Not all earthquakes result in a Tsunami message being issued. For further information on earthquakes and their associated event information, please refer to the U. S. Geological Survey (USGS) Earthquake Hazards Program web page.
