WOW! Guess we are far enough away there's no damage like that here. I suppose if a roadbed is frozen when one hits it is more likely to crack up instead of flex. I start wondering about transmission lines, gas and other pipelines, etc.

Wow! That was big! Got a mess to clean up but it doesn't look like my house suffered any serious damage.

This is when you find out the type of ground a building is built on. Bedrock and the waves will not be as intense. Loose or clay underneath and the shaking will be much worse and the waves much shorter.

Lived thru 1964 and found out our house was built on bedrock. Shook like crazy for 5 minutes but no significant damage in our neighborhood other than garages and chimneys.

We lucked out. One picture fell down. Some 10 inch letters my wife has over the stove fell down and a three step ladder fell over. Our house is fine. No cracks in any of the walls. My wife's daughter in Anchorage has significant damage to her house and tons of broken dishes and other items. Even the refrigerator opened up and spilled everything on the floor. Granddaughter between Palmer and Wasilla had some items fall on the floor, but no real damage.
