5.8 magnitude earthquake rattles Anchorage, Alaska Anchorage-alaska


December 4, 2012ALASKAA magnitude 5.8
earthquake struck off the coast of Alaska on Monday, close to the city
of Anchorage, rattling buildings and knocking bric-a-brac from shelves,
but no serious damage or injuries were reported. The tremor, initially
reported as a magnitude 5.7, struck at 4:42 p.m. (8:42 p.m. EST) 25
miles west of Anchorage, the U.S. Geological Survey said. The quake,
relatively shallow at a depth of 33.1 miles, was widely felt in
Anchorage, according to Guy Urban, a geophysicist for the West Coast and
Alaska Tsunami Warning Center in Palmer, Alaska. “Some people in
Anchorage said some things fell off the shelves,” he told Reuters,
adding that the center was unaware of any severe property damage or
anyone being hurt. Quakes of similar strength are fairly common in
Alaska, one of the most seismically active parts of the United States. –Reuters
