Alaska earthquake claimed no lives, officials say, but infrastructure damage is another story

A 7.0 magnitude earthquake rocked the state of Alaska on Friday morning, churning up roads and sending office workers running to the streets in scenes locals described as pure “anarchy.”

The U.S. Geological Survey said the earthquake was centered about five miles north of Anchorage, Alaska’s largest city.

But if the news, from a casualty standpoint, was good, infrastructure was another story. Republican Sen.Lisa Murkowski said there was major concern regarding recovery efforts and safety.

‘The impact is very real, the impact is very hard, and it will require apparently a great deal of recovery and effort,’ she said. ‘There are homes without power. There is some concern that you may have gas line breaks that could lead to potential further disasters.’

Back-to-back earthquakes shatter roads and windows in Alaska

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) ‘ Back-to-back earthquakes measuring 7.0 and 5.7 shattered highways and rocked buildings Friday in Anchorage and the surrounding area, sending people running into the streets and briefly triggering a tsunami warning for islands and coastal areas south of the city.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the first and more powerful quake was centered about 7 miles (12 kilometers) north of Anchorage, Alaska’s largest city, with a population of about 300,000. People ran from their offices or took cover under desks. The 5.7 aftershock arrived within minutes, followed by a series of smaller quakes.
