Alaska earthquake: 7.0 and 5.8 aftershocks rocked buildings and buckled roads Friday morning

Back-to-back earthquakes measuring 7.0 and 5.8 rocked buildings and buckled roads Friday morning in Anchorage, prompting people to run from their offices or take cover under desks and triggering a warning to residents in Kodiak to flee to higher ground for fear of a tsunami.




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