An Earthquake Rattled Anchorage Alaska Today


An earthquake shook Alaska's largest city, Anchorage this morning. Here's the story from Reuters.com:

"A moderate 5.7-magnitude earthquake shook Anchorage, Alaska's largest city, on Saturday morning.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake's epicenter was 161 miles southwest of Anchorage. There was no tsunami warning in effect, according to the West Coast and Alaska Tsunami Warning Center website.

Magnitude 5 quakes can cause considerable damage, but there were no immediate reports of injury or damage."

    I just know we are due for a big one soon. It may be Alaska, California or somewhere in the south! Yep, they just found a fault line in the south they say could produce a 7+ and there is no way the people in that area are prepared for such a massive quake. It is time for more ground sensors such as those produced and used by Quakefinder (www.quakefinder.com) to be installed in quake zones so we can seriously get down to the business of finding precursors to the major quakes. We can't save the buildings but we could save the people and animals.
