There were no reports of serious injuries.

Traffic has been snarled since the quake.

The Homer High School wrestling team was in an Anchorage school gym waiting for a tournament to start when the bleachers started rocking "like crazy" and the lights went out.

According to officials, the natural disaster was reported as a magnitude 7.0 quake.

Roads aren't the only transportation worry in Alaska.

"There is major infrastructure damage across Anchorage", the city's police department said in an online alert. "There was some structural concerns with some of the trestles".

The company said it will closely watch the system in the hours ahead.

Jet fuel was also being unloaded at another terminal Sunday.

"We were in the kitchen and it felt like the floor falling", said Preston Bettis, from Cleveland, who was visiting his grandkids, daughter and son-in-law at Fort Richardson Army Base. Slaton, who weighs 209 pounds, said it created a powerful back-and-forth sloshing in the bath, and before he knew it, he was thrown out of the tub by the waves. We have been through earthquakes in the past.

He also touted Alaskans' longstanding tradition to stock up for long winters.

"It was the scariest thing I ever witnessed and I'm still scared", said Bettis.

On March 27, 1964, an quake measuring 9.2, the most violent ever recorded in the United States and in the world, had struck the Anchorage region. "Stay off the roads if you don't need to drive".

The earthquakes measured 7.0 and 5.6 and buckled roads across Anchorage Alaska.

Alaska was struck by another powerful natural disaster.

A seismic expert says Alaska and California use the most stringent standards to help buildings withstand earthquakes like the one that struck Anchorage.

The 7.0 magnitude quake struck about 8 miles (13g km) north of Anchorage, a city of 300,000 residents accounting for about 40 percent of Alaska's population. Anchorage officials urged residents not to stock up and hoard supplies because the supply chain of goods was not interrupted.

On March 27, 1964, Alaska was hit by a 9.2 quake, the strongest recorded in US history, centered about 75 miles (120 kilometers) east of Anchorage.
