7.0-magnitude natural disaster that hits near Anchorage, Alaska

Train service south of Anchorage is scheduled to resume Sunday.

A significant quake rocked Anchorage, Alaska at 8:29 a.m. local time today (Nov. 30).

Alaska Governor Bill Walker issued a declaration of disaster. Several cars crashed at a major intersection in Wasilla, north of Anchorage, during the shaking.

The $5 million is essentially seen as a down-payment to help fund short-term repairs while assessments for long-term repairs are made.

"It was very loud when it came", said Anchorage Mayor Ethan Berkowitz.

Walker was in one of the building's elevators at the time of the quake. Most of the damage was done to highways north of Anchorage.

The powerful quake struck shortly before 08.30 local time. Much of that highway was ripped apart in the quake, and motorists must detour around a damaged bridge, he said. Workers there were in the process of unloading fuel from a tanker when the quake hit, Falsey said.

Normal operations resumed at Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport after flight operations were suspended Friday, Transportation Department spokesman Meadow Bailey told The Associated Press.

After the first quake, Alaska's largest hospital activated its incident command centre, but the trickle of patients into the emergency room at Providence Alaska Medical Center in Anchorage was like a normal workday. More than a dozen were higher than magnitude 4 and a handful greater than magnitude 5. "I just keep thinking about how long our house was shaking and about how many aftershocks there were and how it just keeps coming and coming and coming", said Flannery. The epicenter was 7 miles north of Anchorage, and shallow at 27 miles deep. There were no reports of serious injuries.

"That scared the crud out of everybody, and everybody's freaking out a little bit", another rattled Alaskan said Friday afternoon, as students dove under their desks to take cover as the quake rocked classrooms.
