Magnitude 3.7 aftershock rumbles through Talkeetna Mountains

A Wednesday morning earthquake with an initial magnitude of 3.7 was felt in Anchorage and the Matanuska-Susitna Borough, according to the Alaska Earthquake Center.

The quake took place at 9:44 a.m. and was centered seven miles west of Hatcher Pass, 12 miles north of Wasilla and 26 miles deep.

A USGS Shakemap shows shaking that was felt near where the earthquake began.

The shake was an aftershock from the Nov. 30, 2018, earthquake that rocked Anchorage and surrounding areas. Seismologists expect aftershocks from that earthquake will continue to jolt the region over the next year and a half.
