Huge earthquake rocks buildings in Anchorage; tsunami warning issued

A 6.6 magnitude earthquake has rocked buildings in Anchorage, prompting people to run out of offices and seek shelter under office desks. The U.S. Geological Survey says the earthquake was centered about 7 miles north of Alaska's largest city.

Officials issue tsunami warning for coastal areas of southern Alaska after earthquake. There was a tsunami alert for Cook Inlet, the National Weather Service in Anchorage said on Twitter.

Alaska must be a challenging environment to build earthquake proof buildings and infrastructure. The extreme cold weakens and turns materials brittle making whatever structures built prone to failure once it experiences a large earthquake.

The US history of earthquakes usually has Alaska as the strongest and longest
ones.

Bye.
