(pam) tonight... san francisco has a new interim
8:01 pm
mayor. supervisor mark farrell was voted- in... late this afternoon... to fill the seat that was left open by the sudden death of mayor ed lee in december. at the time, the president of the board of supervisors- london breed .. became the acting mayor until today. it was a highly contested and sought after ostgion.. race .. but in a 6 to three vote farrell beat out breed. her supporters were not happy and mad it clear in the meeting. farrell will be the interim mayor until the next mayoral election. (steve) a big story we're following. a powerful earthquake triggers a tsunami warning in alaska. as people flee for higher ground. the seven point nine quake --- prompting a tsunami watch for the west coast. and worry in the bay area before the watch was called off.(pam) the temblor struck off of kodiak island in the gulf of alaska .. and was the strongest earthquake on earth since september....
8:02 pm
(steve) though the tsunami watch was canceled ...the alert had people on edge.(pam) it could have been a much bigger deal in the bay area than it was.. kron four's spencer blake spoke with the u-s geological survey to find out why it was not.(steve) he joins us live from the coast in san francisco. what did you learn, spencer? that area near alaska is known for quakes that often produce tsunamis...but the one this morning...was a different átype of quake that didn't disturb ocean water as much. 1:18-1:25 francis zamora ÷ sf dept. of emergency managementby the time you woke up tuesday morning, you may have seen the push alerts on your phone that a tsunami watch had come...and gone during the night.it was all because of the seven-point- nine magnitude earthquake in the gulf of alaska. geophysicist brian kilgore heard about the quake on the morning news."without any further information i assumed it was probably a subduction zone earthquake simply because alaska is known for its large number of large, subduction zone earthquakes."those are quakes where one tectonic
8:03 pm
plate dives underneath another one.but this quake was different - it had very little vertical motion, and mostly lateral motion, much like the typical quakes here, along the san andreas fault.we dodged a bullet, though, because had it been a subduction zone quake... "an earthquake of this magnitude would almost certainly generate a tsunami of some size."though tsunamis are not kilgore's field of study, he says it's easy to imagine how vertical motion of the ocean floor would displace massive amounts of water, which would cause a tsunami.if you look tsunami inundation maps the state has posted online, you can see how the coastal areas of san francisco could be affected all around. so with tuesday's quake, the reason you didn't hear alarms blaring on your phone, is because the threat of a tsunami was still being assessed after the earthquake happened."if that got upgraded to an advisory or a warning, meaning that a tsunami is likely to occur or already occurring, then sirens become an option."it never did, and the watch was canceled by 4:20 a-m.
8:04 pm
kilgore says the today's quake was only about a hundred kilometers away from the typical subduction zone where those tsunami-causing quakes typically happen.live in san francisco, spencer blake, kron four news. (pam) thank you spencer. the tsunami watch alert was a stark reminder for those living near the coast. pacifica is one bay area city... located in what's called the "inundation zone". and police stress .. if you live in one ... there are things you should be aware of. they say, you will hear sirens, warning you of an emergency. the sirens did not go off last night because this incident was only a tsunami "watch"... there are also signs pointing people to evacuation routes in the case of a tsunami. and pacifica has pamphlets to show where these zones are located.. you can find that information ..at kron-4 dot com.
