7.5 Sand Point Quake: A variety of sensations felt in Kodiak

There were no reports of damage in Kodiak, after Monday’s 7.5 magnitude earthquake struck near Sand Point at 12:54 p.m. But people all over Kodiak Island felt it in varying degrees.

KMXT turned to the Friends of Kodiak Facebook page to find out what people experienced.

Cassie Carlsen said she felt the quake in Bell Flats, which she describes as “long, choppy and shaky” —  and “not rolly” as other quakes.

Tessa Rickerd said she watched her mirror shake for what felt like a long time.

Katherine Maybry said she felt the quake at Abercrombie. “It was a pretty good shake,” she said. “Everything was swaying in the house.”

David Carson said he felt the quake at East Rezanoff and Mill Bay at the Rasmussen’s Trailer Park.

Pat Jacobson said she felt it slightly at Monashka Bay.

Pam Pingree said she felt the quake in Uganik Bay, about 41 miles west of Kodiak.

Others around Kodiak said they felt nothing at all.

A tsunami warning went into effect shortly after the earthquake. A wave was projected to arrive around 2:50 p.m.

The Kodiak Emergency Operations Center reported less than a one foot wave. The warning was then downgraded into a tsunami advisory.
