Some Damage Reported After 7.0 Earthquake Rattles Alaska

Anchorage, AK...From USGS..."The November 30, 2018, Mw 7.0 earthquake near Anchorage, Alaska, occurred as the result of normal faulting at a depth of about 40 km. Focal mechanism solutions for the event indicate slip occurred on a moderately dipping fault striking north-south (dipping either to the east at about 30 degrees, or the west at about 60 degrees). At the location of this earthquake, the Pacific plate is moving towards the northwest with respect to the North America plate at about 57 mm/yr, subducting beneath Alaska at the Alaska-Aleutians Trench, approximately 150 km south-southeast of this event. The location and mechanism of this earthquake indicate rupture occurred on an intraslab fault within the subducting Pacific slab, rather than on the shallower thrust-faulting interface between these two plates.




Earthquakes are common in this region. Over the past century, 14 other M 6+ earthquakes have occurred within 150 km of the November 30, 2018 event. Two of these – a M 6.6 earthquake in July 1983 and a M 6.4 event in September 1983 – were at a similarly shallow depth and caused damage in the region of Valdez. The M 9.2 great Alaska earthquake of March 1964, was an interface thrust faulting earthquake that ruptured over several hundred kilometers between Anchorage and the Alaska-Aleutians trench, and to the southwest."

I have family there. They’re obviously rattled but reached them by phone and they’re okay. The roof of the local high school collapsed and part of the building is on fire with students evacuated. Upper offices in some downtown buildings and the medical center are badly damaged with windows broken out. Prayers for all and that the tsunami is a non-event.

    It Is Obvious: The US Has A Two-Tiered Legal System- Anyone Who Opposes To The Democrat Deep State Cabal Is No Longer Protected By The Law:
    Today Americans are praying they are not on the wrong side of the law. The problem is the wrong side of the law is not based on the law but rather on which political party you are connected to.
    Tucker Carlson shared last night how the US now has a two-tiered legal system today. Those who are part of the corrupt establishment and everybody else.
    The $40 million tax payer funded criminal Mueller witch hunt continues in spite of its unconstitutionality and criminality. Mueller and his Deep State gangsters continue in their efforts to remove President Trump from the White House. At the same time these criminals protect the crooks from the Clinton and Obama administrations.
    Ordinary Americans are outraged as they watch the collusion from the Deep State’s friends in the media promoting the biggest criminal sham in history. The Mueller investigation continues while Americans’ lives are destroyed by this vicious and disgusting gang.
    Good honest Americans have had enough. We will not stand back and allow a gang of Democrat criminals destroy our country!
    President Trump – Please Do Something Now Before Democrats Drive This Country to Mass Violence and Lawlessness!

    Yeah, if you can stand the fact that they're all wanna be Republicans and Sarah Palin is their hero. That and the fact that it's a place with the most recorded rapes per resident ought to tell you all you need to know.

    Could you please explain the meaning of "glade" as it pertains to your sentence you uneducated buffoon?

      We know that glade has been with us since at least the early 1500s, though the word's origins remain a bit of a mystery. Glade, which originally was often used not just to indicate a clearing in the woods but one which was also filled with sunlight, may come from the adjective glad. In Middle English, glad also meant "shining," a meaning that goes back to the word's Old English ancestor, glæd. Glæd is akin to Old High German glat ("shining, smooth") and Old Norse glathr ("sunny"). It may also be a relative of Old English geolu, the ancestor of the modern English word yellow.
      Examples of glade in a Sentence
      Recent Examples on the Web
      Nearby a young male moose lounged in a riverbank glade and a Pronghorn antelope sprinted across fallow farmland once plied by early and unsuccessful Mormon farmers.
