SUAB HMONG NEWS (11/30/2018) – Friday morning, November 30, 2018, a powerful earthquake measuring 7.0 and 5.8 magnitude rocked buildings and shattered roads in Anchorage, Alaska.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the first and more powerful quake was centered about 7 miles (12 kilometers) north of Anchorage, Alaska’s largest city, with a population of about 300,000. People ran from their offices or took cover under desks.

Cracks could be seen in a two-story downtown Anchorage building, and photographs posted to social media showed fractured roads and collapsed ceiling tiles at an Anchorage high school. One image showed a car stranded on an island of pavement, surrounded by cavernous cracks where the earthquake split the road.
