5.9 quake strikes Alaska peninsula

February 1, 2011ALASKA – A 5.9 (6.0 on European scale) quake struck the volcanically-active and densely populated Alaskan peninsula. The quake coincides with yesterday’s  renewed eruption of the Kizimen volcano across the water in Kamchatka. The quake looks like a minor stress-shift from the recent bout of agitation in the South Pacific though we still see an unusual band of activity under Taiwan. Below the graphs for Alaska (left) and Oregon (right) indicating San Juan de Fuca is stirring and the recent 9 quakes rattling Mount St. Helens and the Cascadian fault was no mere coincidental fluke.
