The Kenai Peninsula Borough planning commission dealt with something new at its meeting this week. For the first time, it had to handle a permit denial for building within the borough’s 50 foot habitat protection zone.

A small earthquake on the Kenai Peninsula was felt as far away as Anchorage early this afternoon.

The Alaska Earthquake Center reported a 4.6 magnitude quake centered six miles northeast of Sterling at 12:17 p.m., at a depth of 23 miles. An even smaller, and unfelt 2.2 magnitude aftershock was recorded at 12:21 p.m. in roughly the same spot.

No damage or injuries were reported.

 

It’s been 20 years since the state Board of Fisheries held a meeting on the Kenai Peninsula.

On June 6, 1912, a newly formed vent unleashed the largest volcanic eruption of the 20th century in what became known as the Valley of 10,000 Smokes in Katmai National Park and Preserve. Today, it's a fascinating backpacking destination for anyone with an interest in geology or just an appreciation for impressive scenery.
Host Jenny Neyman speaks with Cathy Bell, chief of interpretation and education at Katmai National Park and Preserve, about the geology of the valley and how to plan a visit.
