More than 80 aftershocks have hit Southcentral Alaska since Friday morning's quake
More than 80 earthquakes have hit southcentral Alaska since this morning’s 7.0 shaker. That 7.0 quake, centered across Cook Inlet from Eagle River, started a cluster of earthquakes centered between Knik-Goose Bay and Big Lake. The first two aftershocks measured 4.8 and 5.7 in magnitude, within just minutes of the first shaker. Just more than 10 minutes later, a 4.5 aftershock hit.
Within a half-hour, a 5.1-magnitude quake shook south of Big Lake. About an hour later a 4.9 shook, centered off Point Mackenzie Road.
