Thousands scramble to clear out of coastal towns after massive 8.2magnitude earthquake strikes in the Gulf of Alaska triggering tsunami warnings and even the aftershocks measured 6.2

Families are scrambling to clear out of coastal towns after a powerful 8.2 magnitude earthquake has struck off the coast of Alaska, triggering a tsunami warning.

The shallow quake hit 56 miles (91 kilometers) southeast of the town of Perryville, the United States Geological Survey (USGS) said, with a tsunami warning in effect for south Alaska and the Alaskan peninsula.

The USGS said the quake, which struck at 10:15 p.m. local time (0615 GMT Thursday), was at a depth of 29 miles.

The US government issued a tsunami warning for Alaska's southeast, while authorities in Hawaii also issued a tsunami watch, but later cancelled the warning.

'Hazardous tsunami waves for this earthquake are possible within the next three hours along some coasts,' the US Tsunami Warning System said in a statement.

Alaska Governor Mike Dunleavy tweeted that the state's emergency operation center had been activated and authorities were contacting communities in the tsunami warning areas.

Perryville is a small village about 500 miles from Anchorage, Alaska's biggest city.

Tsunami warning sirens could be heard on Kodiak, an island with a population of about 6,000 people, along Alaska's coastline. Perryville is home to just 113.

Five aftershocks were recorded within 90 minutes of the earthquake, the largest with a magnitude of 6.2, according to the USGS.

An emergency alert sent to people's phones read: 'The National Weather Service has issued a TSUNAMI WARNING.

'A series of powerful waves and strong currents may impact coasts near you. You are in danger. Get away from coastal waters. Move to high ground or inland now. Keep away from the coast until local officials say it is safe to return.'

A broadcaster on local radio station KMXT said a tsunami, if it was generated, would hit Kodiak at 11:55 pm.

Videos posted on social media by journalists and residents in Kodiak showed people driving away from the coast as warning sirens could be heard.

That is some terrible Huge shaking.
There is no way we can explain these happenings in almost every nation. These are the confirmed endtimes events. The Bible is truly unfolding before us. Jesus Christ is Coming.

The Birthpangs are Raining down in Fericious intensity and Frequency.

From America to South America to Europe to Asia to Australia to Africa, there Is virtually no Place that is not Hit with one monumental Disater or the other.

JESUS likened the days of His Coming to a Pregnant woman due for delivery. As the due day of delivery comes, the Labour and pains increases.

Ladies and Gentlemen, if you decide to deceive yourself and act like it is nothing, continue.
But if you are Mindful and Concious of the safety of your soul in Eternity, then I Admonish you to Humble yourself and Genuinely Surrender to the Lordship of JESUS Christ.

This Ship is Sinking and the Only Life Boat is JESUS Christ.

I see the angel who will blow the last trumpet about to blow it, I see them applying oil to lubricate it so that it will sound loud enough for the whole world to hear, I see billions of people taken unawares by the sound of the trumpet, I see many Nairaland members missing heaven.

This I have seen.

Everything that cause pains to man is the hand work of God according to righteousness 2.

Won't God also do something that will heals our pains?


When we don't pray for disaster but they come
We pray for a prosperous nationa but we don't have one.

We don't pray for pains but they come
We cry, we pray, we fast for chibok girl to return from captivity till we forget what we were praying for.

Won't God surprise us with a miracle that everyone will see the hand of God in it undecided undecided

Why do we always called pains, tears and sorrowful event the sign of God power?
