ANCHORAGE, Alaska — A 7.2 (preliminary) earthquake shook Anchorage, Alaska and much of Southcentral Alaska Friday morning.

According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the quake was centered just north of Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson.

The Anchorage Daily News:

The earthquake was strong enough to knock items off store shelves and rattle homes throughout the region. Books fell off bookshelves; in the offices of the Anchorage Daily News, ceiling tiles fell.

Warnings from the National Weather Service were pushed out to cellphones in Alaska, saying: “Emergency Alert. Tsunami danger on the coast. Go to high ground or move inland.”

Those close to the Cook Inlet should move away from the coast.
