            Kodiak remains under a tsunami advisory with residents warned to stay away from beaches and harbors. That alert comes following the devastating 8.9 earthquake that struck the east coast of Japan at 8:46 p.m. Alaska Time. Paul Whitmore, the director of the Alaska Tsunami Warning Center in Palmer, says the advisory is not an order to evacuate though people should stay away from the water.

             The massive 8-point-9 magnitude earthquake in Japan yesterday had Kodiak residents wondering during the night how Kodiak might be affected, with conflicting reports of a possible tsunami added to the confusion.

            National news reported correctly that coastal areas of Hawaii, including Honolulu were told to evacuate. Sirens were going off in Honolulu beginning about 9 p.m. Kodiak time.

            Later a message from the Alaska Emergency Alert System issued at 11:52 p.m. (Thursday) said that Kodiak was under a Tsunami Warning. A tsunami warning is issued when there is an imminent threat of a tsunami and widespread inundation.

            Later other reports from within the state reported Kodiak to be in an "Advisory" condition which is a lesser level of threat. An advisory warns of strong currents or waves dangerous to people in or very near water.

            A call to the Kodiak Police Department clarified that the Kodiak was under an advisory, not a warning. The tsunami warning applied only to the far western region of the Aleutians from near Adak to Attu. 

            Adding to the confusion, throughout the night and early morning hours, CNN and other national news agencies-and the BBC, which KMXT was airing-were reporting the entire west coast, including Alaska, was under a tsunami warning.

            Throughout the early morning hours KMXT maintained a two-person watch to monitor bulletins from the Alaska Tsunami Warning Center in Palmer. As time went on, KMXT's live updates were less about warning Kodiak residents about a possible tsunami and more about clarifying and correcting reports coming into the island from other news sources.

            The estimated time of initial wave arrival in Kodiak was 3:51 a.m. There were no reports of wave activity.

            March is Women's History Month, and as they've been doing for several years now, the Kodiak chapter of the Soroptimist International - an organization of professional women - has an art show at the Gerald C. Wilson Auditorium, with art exclusively by local women artists. 

            Soroptimist Kodiak officers Laurie Murdock and Chris Lund were on KMXT's Talk of the Rock on Tuesday, which just happened to be International Women's Day. Murdock said the range and quality of the art is excellent - as usual.

            The reception for the Soroptimist art show at the Gerald C. Wilson Auditorium will be from 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday afternoon, and everyone is welcome.
