7.0 magnitude quake rocks Alaska in US

Vine Road south of Wasilla Alaska after earthquakes Friday Nov. 30 2018

We have been through earthquakes in the past. A 5.7 aftershock followed within minutes.

The caption said: "The first floor for the second quake".

This aerial photo shows damage on Vine Road, south of Wasilla, Alaska, after earthquakes Friday, Nov. 30.

Anchorage Police Chief Justin Doll says he is unaware of reports of deaths or serious injuries following the quake that rocked the state's largest city.

"We've had some memorable earthquakes, but I've never experienced anything as strong or unnerving as that natural disaster", said John.

"With a slip rate of more than 2 inches per year, this fault may be one of the fastest-moving strike-slip faults in the world", Baldwin said.

In this photo provided by Jonathan M. Lettow, people walk along Vine Road after the natural disaster. In court, panicked attorneys scurried under tables as a room rocked from side to side.

It was the biggest quake she has felt in her 37 years in a region where temblors are common, Dossett said. One aftershock moved her piano a foot and half from the wall.

"Thankfully I pulled over when I did", he said. But once we realized we had to get under the desks and it kept going, people got scared. "Just broken glass everywhere".

Tyson Fury v Deontay Wilder
Former two-weight world champion Andre Ward wrote on Twitter: "A draw, I understand (even tho I feel Fury won by a 2 or 3 rds)". Wilder surprisingly got the nod by a 115-111 margin from one judge, but Fury was awarded the fight 114-110 by another.

No deaths were reported Friday but several wounded, including a serious one, were hosted in hospitals according to USA media, mainly in connection with glass breakage or falling objects caused by the quake, whose origin was located just 13 km north of Anchorage (about 300,000 inhabitants).

There was minimal structural damage Friday to Anchorage buildings, though some major roadways will need significant repairs. Helicopters and drones were assessing infrastructure across the region.

‎ The University of Alaska announced it was closing for the day. A large section of an overpass near the Anchorage airport collapsed, marooning a auto on a narrow island of pavement next to where the road gave way.

The aftershocks should be weaker and less frequent in the coming days, but officials can't say for sure when they'll stop, Caruso said.

It was measured at a 6.8 magnitude, just a fraction below the 7.0 quake that hit Anchorage Friday.

"You couldn't even stand", said Sheila Bailey, who was working at a high school cafeteria in Palmer, about 45 miles (72 kilometers) from Anchorage, when the quake struck. Both attorneys jumped under their desks.

The magnitude 7.0 quake that rattled Alaska's largest city cracked roads and collapsed highway ramps, but there were no reports of widespread catastrophic damage or collapsed buildings.

"In terms of a disaster, I think it says more about who we are than what we suffered", he said at a press briefing, adding that Anchorage was prepared for such an emergency.

The Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport remained open, but arrivals and departure ramps were closed and there were reports of road damage, the airport said on Twitter.
