Final Update : As expected by ER NO structural damage has been detected but a lot of in-house, in-office etc damage like collapsed ceilings, fallen hanging objects, products fallen from shelves etc. Reason : the deep hypocenter. If shallower, structural damage may have been caused.

Are you one of the people who felt the shaking of this earthquake AND/OR are you aware of any damage (at your place or elsewhere)? If yes, may we kindly request you to let us know what you have felt and if you have damage or not. Please use the form below.

Update 18:25 UTC  : The theoretical Pager expects a MMI VI strong shaking (updated) for the Anchorage area, which reflects better what we receive as IHFI reports.

Update 18:09 UTC : Based on the first received experience reports we fear that slight damage will be possible. Max. theoretical shaking should be MMI V (moderate shaking). Moderate shaking is mostly harmless.

Update 18:07 UTC : ER is not expecting any damage from this earthquake mainly for 2 reasons: a) a too deep hypocenter (breaking point) which makes that the earthquake is felt in a wide radius but b) the distance from populated areas

A TSUNAMI IS NOT EXPECTED (below land and too deep)
