Magnitude 6.1 earthquake hits Alaska, shakes Anchorage

A magnitude 6.1 earthquake shook Alaska’s Talkeetna Mountains north of Anchorage on Sunday night and smaller tremors continued early Monday

....A magnitude 6.1 earthquake shook Alaska's Talkeetna Mountains north of Anchorage Sunday night and smaller tremors continued early Monday.

The earthquake was felt from Homer to Fairbanks, and was felt especially strongly in the Anchorage and Wasilla areas, the Anchorage Daily News reported. Some people described items falling off shelves and many described rolling motion.

There were no immediate reports of injuries or major damage.

The Alaska Earthquake Center reported the quake had a depth of about 27 miles (44 kilometers). Its epicenter was about 60 miles (96 kilometers) east of Talkeetna, about 100 miles (160 kilometers) northeast of Anchorage.

A magnitude 4.6 aftershock struck at about 4:14 a.m. Monday and about a dozen small quakes measuring 3.0 or smaller continue to rattle the area.

It was the largest earthquake to strike southcentral Alaska since the magnitude 7.1 quake in November 2018, the Alaska News Source reported. That quake caused major infrastructure damage across Anchorage, with damage to many homes and buildings and closures for roads and bridges. There were no reports of deaths.

There have been more than a dozen similarly sized, or larger quakes that have struck the Aleutians since the 2018 temblor.



case of the....shakes.........?!

Was a fun shake. We were at the cabin and woke up at 11pm (must be UTC or other time-zone-centric EDIT: Ah, aftershock at 4am) and enjoyed the ride. Mrs. Z was just about ready to bolt (some follow-on trauma from the 7.0 magnitude temblor in November 2018) and the girls came running with the dog from the dry cabin.

Think it shook for a good 20-30 seconds or so. I didn't hear it coming before, however some other friends who were in Anchorage said they'd asked each other if there was a jet flying at that time from the rumble before the shaking arrived.

Glad all is well!
6.0 is right about where they stop being "fun" and start turning scary. Being woke up in the middle of the night by one is even worse.

Yeah, the 2018 quake was another thing all together (NOT FROM THE QUAKE THIS PAST WEEKEND) -


(NOT FROM THE QUAKE THIS PAST WEEKEND)

Had the good fortune of being in a car with suspension to help dampen some of the worst of it. Good article talking about the response to the 2018 quake - [www.theverge.com]
