On the last day of August at 8:32 PM (AKDT) Alaska was hit with a magnitude 5.0 earthquake. The Labor Day seismic event took place just 44 miles South West of Klukwan. The earthquake had a depth of under 1 mile but was felt by residents reaching as far as the state capital, Juneau. At this time The U.S. Tsunami Warning System has not issued a Tsunami Warning/Threat.

Alaska’s Earthquake Center is asking residents who felt the 5.0 quake to please submit a report if possible. Additional information about your situation during the event and how you reacted to the earthquake can be of great value for mapping and research. You can fill out the Earthquake Hazards Program report here.
