Ok, It did feel like a 7.0 because it was so close, but it was only a 5.8, and even though it occurred in the ocean, there was no tsunami warning. I think that may have been a mistake because it was near Augustine volcano which could have produced a landslide into the ocean, but they may have not seen one. It was 60 miles (89 km) away in the ocean near the north side of Kodiak island and near the Barren Island's.

Have you considered moving to Florida to get away from the earthquakes? Of course, there is the occasional hurricane to deal with but this can be mitigated if you stock up on bottled water and batteries. At least that's what the experts claim. I need something to put the batteries in though. I guess that life is just too complicated at times.

You throw hurricane parties in Florida?

Well, if you have lots of batteries and no flashlight or radios, and your neighbor or family has flashlights and radios, you would be the life of the party-
Grizzly bears, alligators, or sharks, hurricanes-- an earthquake is over in few minutes, a hurricane is much more frightening.

I can handle the run-of-mil Cat 1 or Cat 2. Cat 3 and higher it become problematic. That means if you don't evacuate your chances of dying are probable. I just hunkered down, as they say during Irma in 2017, and came through unscathed, including property. Those peeps in Mexico City Beach, Florida were not so fortunate. The entire town was evacuated. After Hurricane Michael it looked like a nuclear bomb was set off. There was nothing left standing except for a single structure designed to withstand such force. Of course, the home is uninhabitable because the town is no longer n existence including the necessary utilities

Actually, despite what was stated in my post, I did have a radio but no batteries. I tried to score some a few days ahead of the storm but all stores were totally sold out, including water, food and toilet paper. We had a good supply of toilet paper though so we were all set in that regard. Had plenty of bottled water too.

No damage at all to our home or car. We did lose power for 40 hours but transported our perishable food to a friends house that had power to prevent spoilage. I have lived in Florida since 1985 but have only been in 4 hurricanes, Charley, Francis, and Jeanne in 2004 and Irma in 2017. Been in countless tropical storms however and those can be destructive and dangerous too. The official start to hurricane season is June 1 and runs through November 30 but it is possible to have a hurricane in Florida any month of the year.

Yeah, it is wise to stay away from grizzly bears, alligators and sharks that's for sure.

There were signs to report too-. A few days ago I was on the street with a sign that says "divine shake down" and Psalm 121:4: "Indeed, He who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep." And I had warned family and friends and a church that day a quake and judgement day was imminent.

This morning I opened a Bible randomly to Mark: 14, and the first words I read were: "I AM, and you will see me, the Son of Man, sitting at God's right hand in the place of power and coming back on the clouds of heaven." (Mark 14:62; NLT; tyndale 1996).

That evening I had also said to God that I would like to fly an ultralight Eagle XL again and found one online.

Psalm 121 was my father's favorite Psalm and he said the verse, "I look up to the mountains--does my help come from there? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and Earth!" (Psalm 121:1; NLT, 2nd Ed. 2013).
He said this verse meant to him to look up to the heavens with a divine "infinite perspective." I think that's a good way of saying to think outside the box, and as Jesus always reminded to have our eyes on the eternal. He always used to counsel me when I was continually stressed out, to always challenge my view of reality to make sure, "is this as it is, or as I misinterpret it to be.". He was a great counselor and said about identity issues: "We have a view of how we see ourselves, and there is how other people see us; the closer those two are, the better.".
He was a good father, very reliable but very human, humbled by life, and like a rock- unshakable!"

The quake also occurred a few minutes after I shined a flashlight/spotlight out my door, and was centered at the north side of Kodiak island, where the Russians established the "Church of the Resurrection.". I have also been warning about the tectonic jam northwest of Kodiak in the Aleutians- island chain. There was nearly a 9.0 quake there February 4th, 1965 with a massive tsunami, about one year after the "Good Friday" 9.3 event in 1964, which followed the largest quake in recorded history in Chile, South America, about 9.6 or so.

I believe that there appears to be a tectonic connection between those three massive quakes. If this is the case, and the math works, then the recent quake in Peru, could have triggered this one which could trigger another "Chain-Breaker" overdue sea quake in the Gap-- "Shumagin-Gap." In the island chain.

Support for this, is the agreement in this forum on the Anchorage 7.1 quake 7 days before it occurred, similar to the "Good Friday" quake of 64, just north of the facility where a young Christian lady died a death similar to crucifixion in severity, and others, native people and others denied medical help and the "right to life" in violation of the 8th and 14th amendments of the Constitution, and the right in America to "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness", like Sandra Bland of Texas.

Because the "chain-breaker" quake in 1965 occurred on my birthday, and the massive asteroid's destruction "passed over" the Superbowl football game in Philadelphia, also on February 4th, last year, and another massive asteroid with it's own moon that looks like a ship passed over just before this quake, just after mother's day in Mexico and here, and Victoria's day in Canada, and armed forced day and before Memorial day here, in memory of warriors, including Jesus the greatest warrior of peace, I believe these are signs of the immediate return of Jesus, and final days of Earth's renewal, reign of Christ, and victory over God's enemies, final victory over evil, and peaceful ruling the Earth.

Let's celebrate these holidays and victories with Martin Luther King Jr., Monk Martin Luther of the Reformation, and John the Baptist, the Church of his name here by the ocean where these quakes and Revelation were recently, and powerfully announced. Let's celebrate victory of peace and freedom in the world by, as Jesus said, by not passing by the suffering as in Matthew 25, and inviting the disabled, poor, and oppressed, and unjustly imprisoned, to the feast of freedom, welcoming all people to God's table, as commanded by Him, and at the request of Mary his mother at the wedding feast.

Let us be prepared, as the 5 bridesmaids who represent the church of all true Christians onboard the ship of life, and not the other 5 who represent a church asleep on the Titanic.
Judgement day is imminent, and always a heartbeat away.
The math also works for my own martyrdom soon.
If not, hope to see you in church!
May this also be a warning to God's enemies, and my own.

Sounds like you are ready in every way possible, far more than me.
I guess my job is to say:
The CAT V is on its way.

Alaska may not have hurricanes, but it has Winter. Almost as much as Saskatchewan. :)

If there was ever a nuclear winter or from an asteroid, or volcano, Canada would rule the world!

I wonder why God hates Canada. The few Canadians i've met don't seem to be any worse than most. there are a number of other
places around I would choose but then I'm not God.
