Aftershocks continued early Saturday across Southcentral Alaska in the wake of Friday’s 7.0 earthquake, making for a restless night for many residents.
Dozens of small aftershocks were recorded, and a number could be felt across the region.
One, with a magnitude of 5.2, jolted the Anchorage just before 11 p.m. Friday, and at least 10 measuring 3.0 or greater were recorded after midnight, including a 4.0 just after 7 a.m., a 3.9 just before 5 a.m. and a 4.5 at 3:44 a.m., according to the Alaska Earthquake Center.
A short thread for those who won’t be able to sleep tonight. I read an interview with a survivor of the ’64 quake who said that sometimes a room would remind him of where he was when that earthquake hit, and he would have to go outside. This was 50 years later.
