A large 6.8 magnitude earthquake has struck off the shores of Alaska.
Measuring at a magnitude 6.8 (some services showing 7.0M), this large event follows a week of major activity along the West coast of the United States, and multiple unexpected Pacific eruptions in Japan, and Central America.
Also, worthy to note the THREE additional 6.8M earthquakes which struck Papua New Guinea this past week.
See the unexpected volcanic blast which just occurred a few hours ago in South Japan:
