Anchorage (United States of America) (13 km S from epicenter)(no details): The earthquake woke me up from sleep; when I ran downstairs to stand in a doorway to be safe, I was able to walk and it wasn't so hard that I was thrown to the ground or anything, but it was more difficult than it usually would be and I was somewhat worried I would fall. In my house, the light furniture that fell was all on the upper story, or was hanging on walls (like a mirror). The ground floor of our house has the least amount of damage; our basement floor and second floor have the most disturbance and object damage. Drawers and cabinets opened at all levels of our house. Items fell out of the cupboards in both bathrooms in our house (on the second floor and in the basement), and in our kitchen. Nothing that fell out of the cupboards broke, though, even glass spice bottles. Most of the objects that fell were upstairs. Books fell from bookshelves, and things that weren't secured, even small furniture, fell. Things that fell were very insecurely attached or were top-heavy, so it isn't significant furniture toppling in my opinion. My stepmom was driving, and she says it felt like her tire was going flat until she saw things moving and realized it was an earthquake. My across the street neighbor was also driving, and says it felt the same for her. I think the phone lines are out, because I'm only able to receive and make calls/receive and send messages through wifi-based apps on my phone, not through the phone's actual calling service. When the big earthquake was happening, I remember seeing the light from the street lamps outside moving, I think both because the lights were swaying and maybe also because the earth was moving, too. I've felt seven or 8 aftershocks since the earthquake happened, and for the most part they've all gotten smaller progressively. The second or third aftershock felt bigger than the one before it, but that's the only exception I can think of. They've also gotten farther apart from what I can tell. I don't know whether or not this is related to the earthquake, but my family's dog was barking for a really long time this morning in between the time everyone else left the house (around 8:00/shortly after 8:00 am) and when the earthquake happened (at 8:29, according to every single earthquake monitoring website I've looked at). Our dog doesn't usually bark that intently for that long, so I assumed there was a moose in front of our house or something, but there's no moose footprints so I could believe it was her barking about the incoming earthquake. She's an eerily smart dog. I just went outside and checked in our two sheds, and nothing fell that I can see in either of them but the large tool chest that my dad has did have its' drawers open up much like the drawers in our kitchen and bathrooms. Also, I'm pretty sure the noise I heard during the earthquake is because of all the movement happening inside of my house, not because of the earth making a noise; I can't be 100% sure of that, though. I'm going to send this survey to my friends and family, so they can fill it out, too. (via EMSC)
