Alaska by David Foster associated press writer anchorages alaskans recent spate of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions is probably just a coincidence and does not presage increased seismic activity scientists say. An earthquake measuring 7.7 on the Richter scale occurred wednesday off the Aleutian islands. The quake alaskans largest since 1965, generated a tsunami that reached to feet in Hawaii. It followed a month of heightened volcanic activity that began March 27, when Augustine Volcano about 170 Miles Southwest of Anchorage awoke after a 10-year slumber. In april Pavlov Volcano shot a plume of Ash and steam 50,000 feet High in a Short lived eruption. Since then two other Aleutian volcanoes have shown signs of renewed activity . Geological Survey scientist Betsy Yount said thursday. A i can to remember a time when we be had More volcanoes in Alaska looking More potentially Active a she said. A but that May be entirely a aftershocks hit aleutians Palmer apr aftershocks continue to shake the Aleutian Island of Adak where a major earthquake wednesday generated a Small tsunami. The Alaska tsunami warning Center said the strongest aftershock measured 6.2 on the Richter scale. None of the aftershocks were big enough to cause a tsunami said geophysicist John Sindorf at the warning Center. Temblor were recorded at 5 05 and 5 08 . Thursday said Sindorf. Their epic enters were located about 70 Miles South of Adak. About Midway in the 1,100-mile Aleutian Chain. Sindorf said both quakes measured 5.7 on the Richter scale and were Felt lightly by person Nel at a Navy installation on Adak there were no reports of damage. Sindorf said he expected the aftershocks to continue for Days diminishing steadily with time. The Aleutian Chain and alaskans Southern coast Are part of the a bring of fire a a the seismically Active Boundary of the tectonic plate lying under the Pacific Ocean a the Pacific Ocean Basin is being jammed under the North american continent. That a what causes earthquakes and that a also what causes volcanic eruptions. But the earthquakes Don t cause volcanic eruptions or vice versa a Yount said. Alaskans big earthquake wednesday was not an uncommon event from a global perspective said George carte a geophysicist at the Alaska tsunami warning Center in Palmer. A we have a magnitude 7 quake about once a month on average worldwide. The ones recently have been in populated areas and have caused injuries and damage so they have received More attention a he said.
