We have no information about an earthquake that could have caused a major quake in the state of Alaska on April 6, 2020.
But we know the Alaska Department of Transportation says the U.S. Geological Survey has not detected a quake anywhere in the country since March 2020, when a magnitude 6.7 earthquake shook Anchorage.
And the Alaska Dispatch News reported on April 3 that the Department of Public Safety is working to identify a new earthquake risk from a quakes in Alaska.
The U.N. has warned that an earthquake of magnitude 6 or greater could be felt in many parts of the United States, including in New York City.
But some of the biggest earthquakes in the United State have occurred over the last two decades.
The most powerful quake in Alaska was recorded at 2:44 a.m. on March 31, 2019, at a depth of 890 feet (250 meters).
That quake was a magnitude 5.3, and the U,S.GS says it occurred in a shallow fault zone and is not considered a major earthquake.
We do not have a high level of confidence that the new quake will cause any damage in Alaska, according to the Department.
It is important that the public remain vigilant and be vigilant about their surroundings in Alaska as well as elsewhere in the U!
We do know that the Alaska Earthquake Insurance Program, which was created to help residents recover if their homes are damaged by an earthquake, is being expanded in 2019.
The Alaska Earthquake Bureau says it has received applications from 4,942 homeowners to receive earthquake insurance.
A total of $16 million of that is for homeowners with properties in Anchorage, Anchorage, Fairbanks, Kodiak and Seward counties.
More to come.
