Emailed Caseniece, she is 375 miles west of the epicenter. Doubt if she felt it.

"Earthquakes don't kill people,
Unreinforced masonry buildings kill people."

Not many of those in Alaska. No mention on the net of any casualties at all. So no extra excitement for Dr. Jennipoo, flying pediatrician.

I have family there, and they’re OK, but one’s house has a cracked foundation.

Still haven’t heard of any significant injuries in the news. Hope it stays that way.
