Roads broke apart, cracks radiated up buildings, and books fell from shelves today when a magnitude 7.0 earthquake rocked Anchorage, Alaska and surrounding areas.
The quake struck around 8:30 a.m. local time (12:30 p.m. on the East Coast), triggering a tsunami warning and driving some residents to evacuate inland. A number of aftershocks between magnitudes 4 and 5.8 continued to hit the Cook Inlet, just south of where the Aleutian Islands meet the mainland, before the tsunami warning was canceled. At press time, no injuries had been reported.
