            Crews from the Coast Guard Air Station Kodiak rescued four people whose tugboat sank yesterday (Sunday) morning east of St. Paul Island in the Pribilofs.

             The 64-foot tug Aries radioed for help at 6:11 a.m. reporting that it was listing badly and the crew was putting on survival suits. Coast Guard Communication Station Kodiak received the Aires' mayday call.

            The Air Station Kodiak scrambled an HC-130 Hercules airplane and an MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter to the scene 109 miles east of St. Paul Island.

            In addition, the Coast Guard Cutter Healy was diverted from its fisheries patrol in the Bering Sea.

            By time the C-130 arrived on scene at 9:30 the tug had already sunk and the four crew members were safely onboard the barge that the Aires had had under tow.

            When the city manager is the person responsible for local tsunami response decisions interesting things can happen when a tsunami warning is issued shortly before the city council is scheduled to approve the next year's budget.

              The regular Kodiak City Council meeting last night began just minutes after the West Coast and Alaska Tsunami Warning Center issued a tsunami warning for part of the Aleutian Islands.

            At 7:10 p.m. a magnitude 7-point-4 earthquake occurred 20 miles southeast of Amutka Pass in the Fox Island. A tsunami warning was issued for the coastal areas of Alaska from Unimak Pass, 80 miles northeast of Dutch Harbor, to Amchitka Pass which is 125 miles west of Adak.

            While the tsunami warning did not directly affect Kodiak, City Manger Aimee Kniaziowski acts as the emergency services director for Kodiak Island. She is the one who ultimately makes the decision whether or not to evacuate low lying areas should a tsunami threaten the island.

            Several times throughout last night's council meeting Kniaziowski interrupted the proceedings to announce updates on the tsunami warning.

            If a tsunami had been generated it would have reached Adak at approximately 8:12 p.m. The all clear was given at about 8:20 and Kniaziowski duly noted the end of the tsunami warning to the council and the audience.

            In passing the city's budget for the coming year, the Kodiak City Council showed solidarity with staff members who had to deal with cuts.

            But the council made it known that it was not pleased with the Kodiak Island Borough Assembly for cutting its funding to animal control. To make a point, the council cut more than $84,000 effectively putting an end to animal control outside the city.

            KMXT's Maggie Wall has more.
