Here is an example of what I mean that it is a hellova lot stronger than 7.2!

twitter.com...

That is a tweet from the local CBS affiliate, KTVA, news office.

Still think the MSM is inflating the magnitude to "make headlines"??

Shallow earthquake. Cook Inlet is sheltered by mountain ranges, so that is why all the warnings for the Pacific areas are called off (and why we typically ignore them too when from other places! It takes too long from the ocean to travel up the inlet to get to Anchorage. And the city is a 100 feet above the shoreline to begin with).

They have settled on a 7.0 and large aftershock was a 5.7. Should be fairly accurate by now.

Still getting small aftershocks every little while.

Near Minnesota and International Airport Road.

As I told JadedandCynical, damages get added to the end figure.

Mid-town shuttling down. Alyeska pipeline, Fred Meyer, (don’t know about BP but they usually lead Alyeska), and ASD are releasing students to their parents if they can get them. Our office building is now empty. The UPS is about to die (why I had internet for a bit).

Now on phone. Should probably charge it!

I think they'd have had to break out the crowbar to break the suction between anus and seat. If I were in that car, that's how they'd have to get me out of there.

Yeah, there is another picture of them on the side of the road with their luggage. Coming or going from the airport I guess.

My wife is in a lot of social media groups and all kinds of false reports are showing up. Hysterical people exaggerating.

I have only minor damage, the pantry stuff is on the floor and few broken items. Pictures all crooked.

It would be the worst over by the base.

I've got power and Internet. GCI and everything seems to be OK. Minor damage like stuff in the pantry on the floor, broken light fixture and dammit, one fossil broken.

Older stick frame house, so not much damage. No broken windows or anything.

Here is the 7.0 on the YouTube feed:



Looks like there is a larger aftershock that just happened a few minutes ago as of this post.

That felt like a large single jolt. 4.9 on the earthquake map.

Yeah, the aftershock that came in just before that prior post was a good size shake. As of now it looks like there are several more smaller ones coming in:



The Spurr station is closest to the epicenter so shows there before propagating to other nearby stations.

Yeah we weresurprised too. Its weird because generally there is a lot of info that comes out. But this time it was quiet.

But that thing definitely was in that 7.0 to 7.2 range. But its also seems this quake has caused more damage than other quakes that have happened. I think we had like a 7.3 or something like 5 years ago.

Whew-ie! That was scary! Yeah, it kinda built up, then rumbled, the BOOM! and kept shaking. Lights went out. The worst parts of the quake were actually pretty short lived, in my opinion. But enough time for me to yell out, “Lord Jesus, help us!” a few times, and a Lord’s Prayer. Ground still swayed for half a min or so after the boom-and-rumble subsided.
Epicenter about 10 miles from here.

Thank you Jesus!

Eta: lots of damage around the area, but I’m surprised not much at our house. One glass thing fell from utop the cabinets and shattered on the counter. Other things fell. Nothing big.

Vine road, maybe a mile away, is one that is destroyed.

Three hours later, still having large aftershocks!

Lost power at the office.

Wild day!

I'll take you at your word about the magnitude... One of the responses to that CBS affiliate tweet puts it even more into perspective:

It wasn’t that bad!

It was the length that started to worry me a bit.

Compared to 9 minutes of shaking like in 2011 Tohoku quake, we got off easy!

You never really know how long a minute is until the earth won’t sit still beneath your feet!

You maybe should've stayed on vacation a week longer.

Stay safe all of you.
