Shocking Video and Images From Anchorage, Alaska Earthquake

Earlier this afternoon a magnitude 7.0 earthquake struck 12 kilometers deep outside of Anchorage, Alaska.  Early reports indicate no significant injuries, but damage reports are slowly trickling in, and some of them are quite significant.  Aftershocks registering as high as 5.8 on the richter scale have also been reported and Tsunami warnings remain in effect up and down the southern Alaskan shoreline. 

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) tweeted the following shortly after the quake took place: “First, protect yourself from an Earthquake. Drop, Cover, then Hold On. Get to high ground as far inland as possible. Be alert to signs of a tsunami, such as a sudden rise or draining of ocean waters.”
