What in the world is going is going in the Pacific Ocean??

A tsunami warning has been canceled for a number of coastal communities in Alaska following a magnitude 7.2 earthquake that struck Thursday near the Aleutian Islands, officials said.

The strength of the earthquake, which was initially reported with a magnitude of 7.4, was revised to a magnitude 7.2, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

“No destructive tsunami has been recorded, and no tsunami danger exists along the coast of the U.S,” the Tsunami Warning Center said.

The warning, which was issued for a 250-kilometer (155 mile) radius from the epicenter, covered the coastal communities from Unimak Pass, located about 80 miles northeast of Dutch Harbor, to Amchitka Pass, about 125 miles west of Adak.

Mind you, on June 16, Anchorage, Alaska was hit by another pretty big quake too. That’s the damage you see in the photo above. Still don’t believe the end is near?
