Skagway (United States) (157 km NE from epicenter)(no details): This is the second earthquake over 5.5 Richter for the last mounth here.I woke up the 1st time and because i felt only the end of it i fall asleep again ( I thougth it's not strong enough - 3-3.5 Richter), but now i was awake and get the most important stuff (phone, money, ID) and after it stops i go outside to wait the secound wave. Guys be careful , because sometimes the second wave is more destructive than the first one, because the fisrt one is shaking and make the buildings unstable and than the second wave is ruin them. I am from Bulgaria and we are feeling earthquakes very often. Protect yourself. (via EMSC)
