3.2 magnitude temblor recorded along Alaska panhandle

The shifting of the plates along the Pacific fault lines slipped a bit just northwest of Prince Rupert this morning, with a 3.2 temblor recorded 90 kilometres West of Craig, Alaska on the panhandle.

Craig is 305 kilometres West-Northwest of Prince Rupert, today's seismic shift had a depth of 8.5 kilometres.

The small scale event which occurred at 8:02 this morning was not strong enough to generate any form of Tsunami alerts, nor has there been any indication that it was noticed in the Craig area, or that any damage was noted there.

The event is at the lower end of a string of recent moderate earth movements registered off of Vancouver Island, though it is the first of note to be recorded in proximity to the North Coast in a number of months.
