An overview of the Alaska Seismic Networks shows that the number of aftershocks from the recent earthquake off Kodiak Island is falling noticeably. The aftershocks are mostly 3’s and 4’s on the Richter, which is good news indeed.
But we learned that you can’t be over-prepared for a tsunami that can easily be generated depending on the way the crust plates behave when they grind into each other. So, as a reminder, get your family one of those NOAA automatic alert disaster warning radios. They’re available at The Electronic Superstore right across 101 from Lincoln City City Hall. They’re also available on line at Amazon.com. Make sure the radio you’re thinking about buying has all 7 of NOAA’s radio channels on it and that it has a wall plug as well as batteries. And that the radio will sound an alarm when an alert is issued by NOAA.
