    Haven't got that far. My house has 'thrown up' most of the stuff off the shelves but the shop isn't to bad. Hope everyone else is doing ok.

    I'm in Hawaii but my employess tell me the shops and warehouse are a mess. No injuries. No power. Lots of damage to roads. Lots of tipped over furnishings in houses. Let the clean up begin.

    That's an elevated highway ramp that always has had a low spot right where if sloughed off. Now it'll get fixed!

    Talked to my daughter a while ago, her house is a mess, she said roads are a mess, overpassed and bridges are damaged. She didn’t say if there was damage on the flight line at Elmendorf, but they shut down so people could go home.

    ANC Earthquake

    My daughter and her family are stuck at SEA.. Ted Stevens International is closed...Aircraft are landing. Her house sitter says the house is a mess but no structural damage...was built in 1954. Survived the 1964 earthquake... wonder how Merrill field is?

    We are in Hawaii too, Honolulu.
    Headed back to AZ, then to ANC on 12/14. Our place has lots of stuff broken and on the floor. Starr's shop is good, but he is cleaning up our unit. 5th floor really shook he said.
    Of course we were in the 64 quake, so this one is the biggest since.
    Where we live on L St the land moved 11' in the 64 quake. Lived back then without sewer/water/power for some time.

    I just got pics of my shop. It’s a mess. Lucky nobody got hurt. Aircraft drive has quite a crack in it. Glad your big building fared well. A buddy’s checking my house now.

    I take that ramp to work every day, thanking God I was off today. Everyone I know is fine, just a bit rattled (no pun intended).

    I don't know much about these things, but I'm curious - was there any advance warning, or has the state of seismic technology still not evolved that far?

    If you have pets, they sometimes freak out a few seconds before a bad one. No accurate sensors ever been produced.

    I bought my tool box with earthquakes in mind. All drawers needed to have that 'click' when they close. And this one was bad enough that some still popped open. Thank goodness it didn't tip. I'm thinking that I should lock the box every time I leave the shop.

    I work for the Alaska Railroad. We lost track, have at least one building in shambles and have our incident command center stood up. There won't be any train movement this weekend. How long this lasts depends on mother nature.
    The 80+ aftershocks today sure aren't helping. As great as the cub is, the R44 is the tool of choice today. Flying in a Clipper or Raven II is usually fun, but not on days like this.
    Hope everyone is safe and the property damage is minor. Ours is not.

    My clicky tool chests slide open on level ground with no earthquake when you bump into them!

    Good luck with the clean up , straighten up.

    I called and in Seldovia , 120 miles south, just shook for a while and stuff didn't even come off the shelves, very lucky. Our house was fine, the planes in Wolf Lake made it thru fine also, very lucky compared to many. Friends in Wasilla took a beating, guess we just neeed to do what we do help each other when in need.

    My shop lost lots of inventory to damage. The house? Cabinet doors open but not one item fell out. A bottle if lotion walked into a vanity sink. That's it. The Cub had tall shelves adjacent to it and nothing fell. Nothing moved. Pretty lucky. One employee lives in Chugiak and his house is a disaster. Not just messy, but structure damage. The random nature of earthquake damage on display again.

    It's always impressive to see something with this kind of mass seem to move so easily. Especially when you know what is required for a mere mortal to get them into a spot and leveled.

    Really surprised to find that the Cub was fine, as it is parked like a puzzle piece with a 172 in a hangar in Birchwood. I expected damage, but was happy to find none.

    My classroom was a different story - mostly a lot of glassware falling out of cabinets and quite an adventure with my students. My house? Oy. Lesson learned on securing dressers and bookshelves to the wall. I'm just glad my kids weren't home, as that could have turned out very badly.

    We were in Kansas visiting friends when it hit. Got back Sat night. Lost some pottery and few dents in the floor but overall we got lucky. Spent yesterday and today doing early spring cleaning moving all the furniture to get the glass/ceramic pieces cleaned up. Only lost one bottle of port in the pantry. This week will be spend cleaning garage/shop/ hanger. Overall fell very lucky, this one was close and we had minimal damage compared to some others. Eagle River got hit pretty hard. I know of two places off the foundation.

    Incredible limit of loss and damage for the entire city.

    Sorry to hear you guys had losses, but the potential for devastation was unrealized; lets hope it never is!

    Kudos to DOT for having an emergency plan in place to get the roads back to use quickly.
    I don't know where you've been me lad, but I see you won first Prize!

    Population density sure does make an impact, as does a tidal wave/ tsunami afterwards i.e. Haiti.

    This earthquake was centered very near the biggest city in Alaska. It's a testament to good building practices, most learned by experience. Including 1964.

    I was not meaning to detract from that at all, it is truly amazing no one was killed.
