Alaska still shaking with aftershocks from 7.0 earthquake | oregonlive.com

On Friday, November 30, a magnitude 7.0 earthquake struck Anchorage, Alaska. The initial jarring was destructive – and now, more than a month later, daily jolts continue to leave residents shaken.Since the main shaking, about 350 aftershocks of magnitude 3 or greater have been registered on seismometers. Some – including the five 5.0 or worse quakes – have been large enough to cause additional damage. Though the aftershocks have slowly been winding down, the magnitude 5.0 tremor on Jan. 1 and magnitude 4.2 on Wednesday show that Alaskans are far from out of the woods yet.
