  • 7.0 Alaska quake damages roads, brings scenes of chaos By: Rachel Sanchez, Amanda Watts, and Dakin Adone CNN Friday November 30, 2018 10: 02 PM https://www.cnn.com/2018/11/30/us/alaska-earthquake/index.html Secondary Source
  • A magnitude 7.0 earthquake that struck near Anchorage, Alaska, on Friday morning crumbled roads and splintered buildings, sent residents scurrying for cover and triggered a tsunami warning for a time
  • The booming quake hit about 8:30 a.m. (12:30 p.m. ET) some 10 miles northeast of Anchorage, at a depth of 21 miles, according to the US Geological Survey. Aftershocks continued after the tsunami warning was canceled.
  • Anchorage Mayor Ethan Berkowitz said. "It was very clear that this was something bigger than what we normally experience. We live in earthquake country so folks ... but this was a big one."

  • It was the most violent quake I felt in her 37 years in a region where temblors are common. One aftershock moved my piano a foot and half from the wall."It shook like I have never felt anything shake before.""It just didn't stop. It kept going and got louder and louder, and things just fell everywhere — everything off my dressers, off my bookcases, my kitchen cupboard. Just broken glass everywhere."
  • Gov. Bill Walker issued a disaster declaration, according to a post on his Facebook page. The Kenai Peninsula Borough School District said all its students were safe. The US Geological Survey has reported dozens of aftershocks. The largest, registering 5.7, was located in the city of Anchorage. Seismologists predicted many more in the coming days and weeks.
