[FoxNews]Alaska earthquake claimed no lives, officials say, but
infrastructure damage is another story
Full story:

A 7.0 magnitude earthquake rocked the state of Alaska on Friday morning,
churning up roads and sending office workers running to the streets in
scenes locals described as pure "anarchy."

The U.S. Geological Survey said the earthquake was centered about five
miles north of Anchorage, Alaska's largest city.

Republican Rep. Donald Young said at a press conference Friday evening
that an initial assessment found that the earthquake was not deadly.
“We’re quite pleased to report that there’s been no deaths at this time
that we know of,” he said.

But if the news, from a casualty standpoint, was good, infrastructure
was another story. Republican Sen.Lisa Murkowski said there was major
concern regarding recovery efforts and safety.

“The impact is very real, the impact is very hard, and it will require
apparently a great deal of recovery and effort,”’ she said. “There are
homes without power. There is some concern that you may have gas line
breaks that could lead to potential further disasters.”

GOP Sen. Dan Sullivan added that the state has already seen major
aftershocks, “some above 5.0” magnitude.

“Make no mistake, this was a big one,” he said, citing a serious concern
regarding transportation impact. “Right now the highways in and out of
Anchorage, with the exception of one going up north, are cut off and
that’s a big problem for us.”
