A magnitude 7.4 earthquake has striked 124 miles ESE of Nikol'skoye, Russia. Tsunami threat Imminent advisory message issued for East Russia and issued for portions of Alaska’s Aleutian Islands after the powerful earthquake hit.

The official warning reads the following:



Actions to protect human life and property will

vary within tsunami advisory areas.

If you are in a tsunami advisory area;

* Move out of the water, off the beach, and away from

harbors, marinas, breakwaters, bays and inlets.

* Be alert to and follow instructions from your local

emergency officials because they may have more detailed or

specific information for your location.

* If you feel a strong earthquake or extended ground rolling

take immediate protective actions such as moving inland

and/or uphill preferably by foot.

* Boat operators,

* Where time and conditions permit, move your boat out to

sea to a depth of at least 180 feet.

* If at sea avoid entering shallow water, harbors,

marinas, bays, and inlets to avoid floating and

submerged debris and strong currents.

* Do not go to the shore to observe the tsunami.

* Do not return to the coast until local emergency officials

indicate it is safe to do so.



Impacts will vary at different locations in the advisory


If you are in a tsunami advisory area;

* A tsunami with strong waves and currents is possible.

* Waves and currents can drown or injure people who are

in the water.

* Currents at beaches and in harbors, marinas,

bays, and inlets may be especially dangerous.

* Some impacts may continue for many hours to days after

arrival of the first wave.

* The first wave may not be the largest so later waves may

be larger.

* Each wave may last 5 to 45 minutes as a wave encroaches

and recedes.

* Coasts facing all directions are threatened because the

waves can wrap around islands and headlands and into bays.

* Strong shaking or rolling of the ground indicates an

earthquake has occurred and a tsunami may be imminent.

* A rapidly receding or receded shoreline, unusual waves and

sounds, and strong currents are signs of a tsunami.

* The tsunami may appear as water moving rapidly out to sea,

a gentle rising tide like flood with no breaking wave,

as a series of breaking waves, or a frothy wall of water

Authorities say to pay attention to local alerts if you're within the vicinity of the potential Tsunami path. Follow directions from the emergency medical responders in the area and remain calm as not to create widespread panic.

If you're in the region please stay safe and may God be with you.
