8.2 Magnitude Earthquake Strikes offshore Russia, Tsunami Center Investigating — TheWeatherSpace.com

A magnitude 8.2 Earthquake struck offshore Russia on Friday.  The Tsunami Center is investigating further on the quake’s power.  Earthquakes of this size are known to generate tsunamis, potentially dangerous to coasts outside the source region.

More information will be available as products are issued and the investigation is underway.

TheWeatherSpace.com Senior Meteorologist Kevin Martin says the quake might be too deep.

“You are looking at a quake that was 385 miles deep,” said Martin.  “Generally tsunamis are generated with much shallower earthquakes so chances are the warning center will not issue watches for it.  We are awaiting their official word.”

The final word has come in.  A Tsunami Warning/Watch will NOT be issued by the Tsunami Center.
