The epicenter was nine miles east-northeast of the town of Nikiski and was 30 kilometers below the earth after the tsunami program manager in Alaska, Cindi Preller. “It woke us all,” said Anchorage Daily News. “Who needs coffee?” I’m about to call Nikiski and make sure you are well. ” The quake struck 50 miles southwest of Alaska’s largest city, Anchorage. The Alaska Earthquake Information Center said the quake was felt widely in the Kenai Peninsula and Cook Inlet regions, with the strongest tremor to hit the peninsula communities of Sterling and Soldotna.
Andrew Smith, Soldotna Town Hall in the Kenai Peninsula, told reporters: “At first, I felt like someone was walking across the floor of it, like real heavy walking Then he stopped was then a delay of five or six seconds, and then actually hit” I’m really afraid of earthquakes. You never know when you will stop or how long it will last. “
