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.
