Alaska Airlines has temporarily suspended its flight operations until at least 12:30 pm local time. "The Tsunami Warning in Alaska that accompanied this morning's M7.0 natural disaster has been cancelled", the NWS said via Twitter. Delays came as drivers were diverted around road damage on temporary detours or the highway was reduced to one lane while crews try to reconstruct the roadway after the temblor caused sinkholes and buckled pavement. "This feels like something that could really do some damage'".

The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake was centered about 7 miles north of Anchorage, Alaska's largest city, with a population of about 300,000, and strong after shocks continued through the day.

Walker said says he has spoken to President Donald Trump and the White House has offered to help.

Despite the chaos, Anchorage authorities said on Friday night that no fatalities or serious injuries were reported. The event started at about 8:30 a.m., with multiple aftershocks following.

"We are praying for the safety of all Alaskans!" she said. Its closest section is 120 miles (193 kilometers) from the epicenter of the seismic activity.

Still, hundreds of aftershocks frayed nerves Saturday as people anxious about being caught in more massive shakers.

"There is quite a bit of damage across Anchorage", West said in a Facebook Live interview, according to the paper. "I kept waking up".

It was measured at a 6.8 magnitude, just a fraction below the 7.0 quake that hit Anchorage Friday. A driver attempting to exit Minnesota Drive at International Airport Road was not injured when the ramp sank.

The deceased are believed to have been out for a walk when the bear approached Monday, sometime between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. They had settled in the cabin during of Ms Theoret's maternity leave from teaching at a Whitehorse primary school.

Aftershocks from Friday's powerful Alaskan quake continued to pound the area around Anchorage on Saturday, as workers strove to patch up buckled roads and residents began cleaning up damage around their homes and businesses. More than a dozen were higher than magnitude 4 and a handful greater than magnitude 5, Falsey said.

Disaster declarations were issued by Governor Bill Walker and Anchorage Mayor Ethan Berkowitz.

"Building codes mean something", he said.

The hope is that the Shake Alert early warning system in place in Washington will assist in some way, providing people with up to a minute's warning before an impending quake. We looked after one another.

Railroad spokesman Tim Sullivan said Saturday there are three areas north of Anchorage that are impassible and preventing trains from making the trek between Anchorage and Fairbanks.

"It will take months for the rate of the aftershocks, the rate at which they're occurring, to drop down to what you would consider background levels", he said, although the vast majority were too small to cause damage.

"It shook like I have never felt anything shake before", she said.

Roads didn't fare so well.

Officials say there are 40 sites in the area with some type of damage, and eight of those are considered major.
