One of those aftershocks triggered the tsunami warning. Rare that an aftershock poses a tsunami threat and not the parent quake.

More than 200 smaller quakes have hit Alaska since their huge 7.0-magnitude quake on Friday, according U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) data.

The USGS earthquake tracker lists 224 quakes after the major one on Friday, which knocked out power, destroyed buildings and ripped up roads near Anchorage.

Most of the quakes are in the 2.5 to 3.5 range with two at 5.2 and 4.5.
Depth is running between 35 and 50 km
Clearly there's been quite a shake up along southern Alaska.

Why California should take notice........

 

What is the takeaway for California?

California has a long history of large earthquakes, and experts said the Anchorage destruction should be another warning to prepare.

A similar-size earthquake around downtown L.A. would be much more destructive because the buildings are older and the area much more densely populated.

“In t he Los Angeles area there's a much more extensive array of infrastructure throughout the city,” said Tytell. “Up in Alaska, things are a little bit more rural, a little bit more spread out. But make no mistake, there is a city there.”

Aside from the mighty San Andreas fault, Southern California is criss-crossed with smaller faults that pose major dangers, including the Newport-Inglewood fault, which produced the 1933 Long Beach quake, and the Hollywood fault, which runs through the heart of Los Angeles.

Another big concern is the Puente Hills thrust fault, which runs from near Whittier through downtown L.A., USC and Dodger Stadium, before veering west toward Beverly Hills.

"You can expect earthquakes in magnitude 5 or 4 to continue for the next couple of weeks, and as time goes on it tapers off,” said Rafael Abreu, a geophysicist with the U.S. Geological Survey Earthquake Science Center.
