(ANCHORAGE, KTUU) – a The U.S. Tsunami Warning System has rescinded all threat warnings surrounding the Kodiak-area quake that occurred overnight Tuesday.
Jeremy Zidek, of the Alaska Div. of Homeland Security and Emergency Management, said Tuesday morning that shake damage from the Tuesday morning earthquake is unlikely, but that the group does have concerns about tsunami waves.
"In Kodiak, they've activated their sirens," Zidek said. "The harbor master reported a wave did come in, but not a significant wave."

At least nine communities had evacuation orders in place. Zidek said that while the initial reports don't show shake damage just yet in Alaska, he implores people to follow community-issued evacuation warnings.
