Massive 7.4 magnitude earthquake strikes Alaska Peninsula, triggering tsunami warning

New Delhi/IBNS: Today, a powerful 7.4 magnitude earthquake jolted the Alaska Peninsula region, as reported by the United States Geological Survey (USGS). 

Following the seismic event, authorities promptly issued a tsunami warning for specific areas within the US state.

The earthquake originated at a depth of 9.3 km (5.78 miles), according to the USGS. Its impact reverberated across vast expanses, with tremors felt throughout the Alaskan Peninsula, the Aleutian Islands, and the Cook Inlet regions, as confirmed by the Alaska Earthquake Centre, NDTV reported.

While the quake's aftermath remains under assessment, there have been no immediate reports of casualties or significant damage.

However, it is crucial to note that this unfortunate incident comes in the wake of devastating consequences elsewhere, with over 250 lives tragically lost to the earthquake and ensuing tsunami.

Authorities and relief organizations are actively monitoring the situation, poised to provide assistance and support where needed. Further updates on the impact and recovery efforts will follow as information becomes available.
