It's now been upgraded to M 7.0 with strong aftershocks in the surrounding area. There are now reports coming in of buildings with moderate damage in the city.

It was a real shaker. The worst I can remember since a pair of earthquakes about fifteen years ago.

Some damage to roads and buildings. Lots of power outages and 911 doesn't work in my area. Thankfully so far no reports of deaths or serious injuries.

Minor damage inside the house - a lot of small stuff went flying.

All the big stuff we have pinned down/bolted to the wall.

Electric is back up in may part of town.

The first aftershock was a MFer.

Just had another, really sharp AF come thru.

AT&T cell service stayed up, the wire phone service stayed up as well.

Lost a large mall (windows out, inventory all on the floor etc.

Traffic is a solid mess. I got to my DW school to check on her, drop off more flashlights.

Thanks to plan F I was able to drive back home - only had to take two alleys....

Seems all those earthquake drills didn't actually prepare anyone for the real thing.

Every time I went to get into the shower this morning there would be an aftershock that would scare me out of it. I didn't want to be wet and naked if things started coming down around me. :lol:

The local gas station is letting people know that they think they will run out of gas soon, and with the road impassable it might be a while before they can get any more.

The septic system at work broke during the earthquake, so today has been an interesting conflict between my need for coffee and me not wanting to poop my pants. :lol:

Yeah, I'll definitely have to stock up going forward. :lol:

On the other hand, I work at a health clinic so maybe I could swipe one. Probably shouldn't, as I don't want to have to explain to people that I was fired for embezzling Pampers.

Normally earthquakes in AK are pretty overblown in the lower-48 news, but this one seemed pretty rough.

My family reported a decent amount of damage in their homes ranging from Wasilla to Anchorage.

But... it goes to show the big issue with only 1 road running throughout the state...

I remember this from last year, I got to miss work for 3 days: https://www.ktva.com/story/37789450/bri ... tood-still

Some of the pictures show incredible damage. While other pictures damage that can only be described as negligent. Only thing I can think of is that the varation is due to level of liguification

When it rains, it pours.. Storm hitting town now has winds of 75MPH and rain - but by Sunday night we should have 6 to 8 inches of snow.

If you don't like the weather, just wait a couple of days.
