The Wall Street Journal: Powerful earthquake rocks Anchorage, Alaska, with ‘major infrastructure damage’

A magnitude 7.0 earthquake rattled Anchorage, Alaska, Friday morning, causing damage to roads and bridges, sending office workers under desks and setting off a brief tsunami warning for populated areas along the surrounding coast.

There were no immediate reports of deaths or serious injuries from the quake, which the U.S. Geological Survey reports struck about 10 miles north of the most populous city in Alaska. The tsunami warning was canceled after no large waves were detected in Cook Inlet next to the metropolis of 400,000 people, or 54% of Alaska’s population. Widespread damage was reported to roads and bridges along with power outages and cracks in buildings.
